The Christopher Brooks Memorial Prize
I recently entered an application for the Lancashire Sinfonietta's annual award for young composers of the North West of England. The prize consists of a year-long residency, co-hosted by Live at LICA (Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts) and has already given a number of composers valuable experience and contacts to help launch their careers.
For my application I have entered 3 pieces, "Animus" (string orchestra), "Cold Fusion" (piano) are available on my Facebook and Souncloud and Finally "Chasm" hopefully soon to be performed by the Ligeti string quartet.
The award will be announced in late March and the winner will begin a residency working with the chamber Orchestra.
