'Sydney International Composers Concerts 2017'

Supported by the SCO Foundation and the composers themselves, the Sydney Contemporary Orchestra (SCO) proudly presents the Sydney International Composers Concerts 2017.

Consisting of two concerts, Contemporary Orchestral Music and Contemporary Piano Music of Colombian Composers, and open rehearsals, the Sydney International Composers Concerts 2017 will bring you 16 unparalleled modern works by contemporary composers from around the world.

Contemporary Orchestral Music - with 60 passionate and dedicated musicians of the SCO, and directed by Dr Brian Chatpo Koo, the Contemporary Orchestral Music concert is an amazing opportunity to hear absolutely new orchestral music of contemporary composers from Japan, USA, Italy, Colombia, Brazil, and Australia. These composers will attend the concert and share their musical ideas, philosophies and creativity with each other and the Sydney audience.
Contemporary Piano Music of Colombian Composers - performed by prominent Colombian composer and pianist Mauricio Arias, this unforgettable piano recital features 10 piano solo works from outstanding composers from Colombia.

The open rehearsals provide opportunities for composers, musicians and members of the public to meet each other to share ideas, observe how the music has been designed and developed, and also encourage the composers' creativity and innovation.
