LSO Panufnik Composers Scheme 2017

Tuesday 7th February 2017

Sophya's delighted to announce that she has been selected to participate in London Symphony Orchestra's Panufnik Composers Scheme.

The Panufnik Composers Scheme offers six emerging composers each year the opportunity to write for the LSO.

The scheme welcomes composers from a wide range of musical approaches and backgrounds. A diverse selection panel chooses composers who show a high level of compositional ability in writing notated work in contemporary classical or other musical genres, and the potential to write a three-minute full orchestral work for a public workshop.

The Panufnik Composers Scheme was devised by the Orchestra in association with Lady Panufnik in memory of her late husband, the composer Sir Andrzej Panufnik, and is generously supported by Lady Hamlyn and the Helen Hamlyn Trust.
