Composers' and Conductors' Courses - Applications now open.
The 40th ST MAGNUS INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL will take place in June 2016. The Festival is one of the UK's most exciting events bringing extraordinary performances to the remote and inspiring landscape of the Orkney Islands around midsummer every year.
The courses offer unique and unrivalled opportunities for the composers and conductors to work with professional ensembles to meet fellow musicians and to experience high quality performance in an intense and unforgettable experience. There are eight places for each course and these are highly sought after. This year's participants will include Sally Beamish, Martyn Brabbins, Alasdair Nicolson, Charles Peebles, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Hebrides Ensemble.
