Young Composers’ Summer Project

Online, Monday 21st June - Friday 25th June

The Academy welcomes young composers to work with composer Jonathan Nangle as part of this year's Summer Programmes

About this Event
Young composers (and would-be composers) age 15-18 are invited to spend a week working with Composer and RIAM Faculty member Jonathan Nangle, as they explore the vast possibilities of using technology to create their own compositions.

Participants will work remotely with RIAM musicians to learn more about writing for different instruments, and build an excellent foundation to begin a Summer of musical creativity, as they learn to realise their music with the devices, resources, and technology they already have at home.

As a composer, his work has been commissioned and performed internationally by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Crash Ensemble, Ensemble Scratch the Surface, The Dublin Guitar Quartet, The Chatham Saxophone Quartet, Ergodos Orchestra, New Dublin Voices, Irish Youth Choir, the Spatial Music Collective, violinist Darragh Morgan and pianist Thérèse Fahy, among others.
