St George's Bristol

In July 2015 the Foundation awarded a grant over 3 years to St George’s Bristol to fund their Young Composer’s Academy, involving 90 music students, aged 15-18, from secondary schools across the South West in a three year immersive, practical programme of workshops and masterclasses. The Academy will focus on music composition of all genres, with opportunities to work with professional composers and musicians. There will be an opportunity for compositions to be performed at St George’s and ultimately to gain a professional, paid commission in year three as ‘St George’s Composer in Residence’.
