The International Young Composers Academy in Ticino to be held July 19-30 2021 in Lugano, aims to strengthen cooperation between composers, performers and ensembles.
This year’s tutors are Oscar Bianchi (director and professor), Juste Janulyte (professor), Mauro Lanza (professor), and ICTUS is ensemble in residence.
Selected participants will have the opportunity to compose brand new works to be premiered in Lugano. Each participant will benefit from dedicated and coached rehearsals and individual lessons. Faculty composers will hold lectures, and each participant will have the chance to present their work publicly. A roster of five renowned Swiss composers will contribute to the Academy, contributing to its stylistic and cultural diversity. Inclusion, gender equality, and diversity are keystones of this Academy, where challenging cultural and stylistic diversities are embraced and questioned.
Deadline 28 February 2021
