SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL COMPOSERS CONCERT 2018

Supported by the SCO Foundation and the composers themselves, the Sydney Contemporary Orchestra (SCO) proudly presents the Sydney International Composers Concert 2018.

The Sydney International Composers Concerts were created for today's composers, to provide real opportunities for new orchestral music to be performed and heard by today's audiences.

Music history is written by composers, and these composers are commendable and should be highly respected for their hard work, their dedication to the art, and their generous contribution to our music culture. All the composers who take part in the Sydney International Composers Consents do so without requiring payment of royalties they would otherwise be entitled. They do this because they are convinced that the continued performance of new music is essential to the development of our music culture.

Thanks to the SCO Foundation, that by it's limited funds it has enabled this project to happen.

Featuring 5 new works by contemporary composers from the USA, Italy, Brazil, and Australia, and with our passionate and dedicated musicians, Sydney International Composers Concert 2018 is an amazing opportunity to hear new orchestral music of contemporary composers, to share their musical ideas, philosophies and creativity, and to challenge your ideologies.
