Birmingham Town Hall & Symphony Hall (THSH) are currently requesting submissions from from composers for an 8 minute jazz piece for a large children’s ensemble. The piece is commissioned by Town Hall Symphony Hall in collaboration with Birmingham Music Service.
They are seeking a jazz composer and performer to write the next Jazz Electives piece that will be performed in the Generation Ladywood Showcase in June 2014. This is a fantastic opportunity to not only write the commission, but to lead creative familiarisation sessions with Birmingham Music Service tutors and two mass rehearsal sessions for the 250 strong ensemble of children and conduct the performance in Symphony Hall.
You will need to be quick as submissions close 31 July 2013. For further information and how to apply please check out their website: www.thsh.co.uk
