Nathan 'adopted' into Making Music UK / Sound and Music's Adopt-a-Composer 2018 Scheme / by Nathan James Dearden

Nathan has been selected onto the Making Music UK's Adopt-a-Composer scheme. As part of this acclaimed programme, Nathan has the opportunity to closely collaborate with the Swansea Philharmonic Choir towards a new 10-minute work to be premiered in 2019 and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

What is the Adopt-a-Composer scheme?

The Adopt a Composer scheme pairs leisure time choirs, orchestras and ensembles with a composer for a year culminating in a première performance and a broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

The composer has the opportunity to get to know a performing group and write a piece especially for them to première, while the group has the chance to contribute to the creation of a new work by some of the UK’s most promising composers. Pieces that are composed are usually around ten minutes long (as a very rough approximation) and are usually written to work around your existing repertoire and schedule.

The project is run by Making Music in partnership with Sound and Music, in association with BBC Radio 3, and funded by the PRS Foundation, Philip and Dorothy Green Trust and Creative Scotland.
