Opening Concert – Composers Association NZ
- This event has passed.
A key event in the New Zealand music scene, the annual CANZ Nelson Composers Workshop provides opportunities for emerging composers to learn about their craft and industry, to make connections with colleagues and peers, and to support our community.
As part of this annual event, CANZ offers an opening and a closing concert.
The CANZ Nelson Composers Workshop is open to all composers, sonic artists, improvisers, electroacoustic musicians, who are not yet professionally established, including senior secondary students, university students, and freelancers.
Selected participants have a work rehearsed and performed to a professional standard. Performances will be recorded and filmed, and documentation sent to the participant after the workshop. We assign each participant an experienced composer, to act as mentor, to help in rehearsals and in guiding post-performance discussions. The workshop also comprises daily lectures and discussions, instrumental demonstrations, concerts, and opportunities for socialising.
