Jean Coulthard Readings — Call for Scores
The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is pleased to present the Jean Coulthard Readings during the 2017/18 Symphony Season. Named in honour of one of BC’s most beloved composers, the Jean Coulthard Readings give emerging BC composers an invaluable opportunity to have their work read by a professional orchestra. Approximately six orchestral works will be selected, depending on duration and level of difficulty. Participating composers will receive a part preparation seminar with VSO Music Librarians and a follow-up masterclass with the Vancouver Symphony’s Composer-in-Residence, Jocelyn Morlock (MMus'96, DMA'02).
Score Submission Deadline: 5:00pm, Mon Sept 25, 2017
