Applications for Emerging Composers close in 3 weeks


Now in its fourth year of the programme, Emerging Composers offers the opportunity to write for Scotland’s only concert Pipe Band, the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland. We are calling for emerging composers aged 18-25 (or up to 30 if you identify as disabled) from both inside and out of the piping community to create new work for the NYPBS.

We particularly welcome applications from people of colour, disabled people, women and the LBGTQ+ community. 
Each composer will receive a bursary of £2,000 and support from NYPBS staff and industry topping mentors.

Find out more on the NYPBS website here and apply now. Applications close on July 24.
