Associate Composer Callout

Festival Fresco are building a pool of composers to collaborate with for future festivals. This could include, but is not limited to:

  • Writing a piece for one of our festivals

  • Having a pre-existing piece performed by our the Fresco Musicians

  • Participating in outreach projects such as workshops or panel discussions

  • Contributing to our YouTube channel

The Associate Composer scheme is flexible, and you can be involved as much or as little as you would like to be. We would like this arrangement to be beneficial for all pares, so we highly encourage creative input and ideas from our composers as well. Equally, it is important to us that this a two-way process so if you have an idea that you think Fresco might be able to help with or facilitate then let us know - we’d love to hear from you!
