A collaboration between Westlake Symphony Orchestra and SOUNZ Centre for New Zealand Music.
The Westlake Symphony Orchestra is an accomplished school orchestra conducted by David Squire. The aim of this project is to encourage New Zealand composers at all career stages to have high quality works available for non-professional orchestras. By making these works available through SOUNZ Online orchestras will be able to watch and listen to repertoire they can programme and perform. The selected works will be recorded and filmed later in 2018 by SOUNZ, and one work may be performed by the Westlake Symphony Orchestra at the KBB Music Festival in August 2018.
Call for scores
SOUNZ is calling for scores from New Zealand composers suitable for a secondary school orchestra. The duration of the work should be 2-8 minutes. There is also the option of submitting a concerto work featuring a piano, viola or violin soloist.
The deadline for submission is 9am Monday 29 January 2018, and the parts for the selected works will be due at 9am Monday 5 March.
