Composers chosen to work with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
NEW music has been flooding into Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Following a call for new music scores the BSO and its contemporary music group Kokoro received over 70 scores.
Of these eleven have been chosen to be performed as part of a celebratory South West Composers day, to be held in Poole on 2nd March.
Workshops and performances will give a unique insight into how to write new music for a symphony orchestra or ensemble.

Nick Thorne, BSO Education project manager said: "The future of orchestral music would seem to be very strong if these scores are any indication of the range of work that is going on across the country."
The successful scores will each be examined in a masterclass, led by eminent composer James MacMillan, and then performed by the full BSO as part of a day which aims to unlock the mysteries of composition.
The day ends with a full orchestral concert at Lighthouse Poole by both the BSO and Bournemouth Symphony Chorus. James MacMillan will conduct Silvestri's challenging Three Pieces for Strings; a piece premiered by the BSO at the 2012 Cheltenham Music Festival, Hannah Kendall's Shard (inspired by the latest dramatic addition to London's skyline) and finally his own two compositions The Magnificat (commissioned for the first choral evensong of the new Millennium, at Wells Cathedral) and Nunc Dimittis commissioned by Winchester Cathedral.
Tickets are available for the concert only. Under 18s can attend for just £1 as part of the BSO's Kids for a Quid scheme.
