BILKENT COMPOSITION ACADEMY 2017

18 – 22 June 2017, Ankara

Bilkent Composition Academy is an international summer composition workshop primarily conceived for emerging composers. It aims to create multilayered networks among new music composers, performers, pedagogues, professionals and academics of further music related fields on interdisciplinary basis within Turkey, surrounding geographies, Europe, and worldwide.

The first edition of Bilkent Composition Academy will take place from June 18th to 22nd at the Bilkent University Campus in Ankara. Active participants will have the opportunity to work privately with the renowned composer Mark Andre and collaborate closely with Hezarfen Ensemble. Their works will be realized through daily rehearsals and subsequently performed by the resident Hezarfen Ensemble in the final concert of the Academy.

Additionally, Hezarfen Ensemble will present the “Mark Andre Portrait” as a separate concert event and faculty professors will conduct seminars, workshops, round table discussions and individually tailored classes.

All activities are to be mainly held in English. (Supplementary language will be Turkish.) Activities and results of the Academy will be subject of an audiovisual documentation.
