Welcome to the Portfolio: Music for Young Players Application Form
As part of the Portfolio programme for 2017/18, Sound and Music, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Heritage Quay and the British Music Collection are offering an opportunity for two composer/creative artists who wish to develop their practice as artists in education.

The composers will select scores from the Music for Young Players series to use as starting points in two primary schools, work with children to create a realisation of these scores and make original, collaboratively composed companion pieces during the autumn of 2017.

The new pieces will be performed in a specially curated event during the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in November 2017.
