ensemble vim Composer Fellowship Program

FOR LINKS: https://www.ensemblevim.org/fellowship-program

One fellow will receive a commission from ensemble vim with workshop time, mentorship, and resources to develop a new work to be premiered and recorded by the ensemble. The selected fellow will work closely with composer mentor Dr. Emily Koh and members of ensemble vim for guidance. Workshops, reading sessions, and mentor discussions will happen during ensemble vim’s 2020-21 season. The exact schedule will be determined with the selected composer based on availability and need.

Composers from or currently based in the Southeastern US are eligible. There is no age limit. Artists from communities underrepresented in classical music are especially encouraged to apply, and no formal composition training is required.
