The Performance-Oriented Composition scheme is an innovative and groundbreaking programme that integrates Composition and Conducting. It aims to combine the expertise of composers with the sensitivity of performers and addresses the Composition towards its practical fulfilment in performance. Filling a gap in the current education pathways that bind the practice of Composition within the completion of a score, the Performance-Oriented-Composition scheme is a unique opportunity to develop compositional skills along with conductor training. It encourages the blossoming of contemporary practices that blend musical imagination with adventurous performances.
