On June 3-11, 2013 acclaimed Montreal string quartet Quatuor Bozzini will give an intensive workshop on composing for strings in Vancouver (BC). Hosted by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU, the workshop is intended for young composers in the earlier stages of their studies or artistic development.Besides the quartet, composers Owen Underhill (SFU) and Christopher Butterfield (UVIC) will act as mentors.

The goals of the workshop are to improve technical skills for contemporary writing for strings and string quartet, and to provide a supportive environment for visionary compositional ideas. Those accepted to the workshop will be given composition exercises as a starting point for the week’s work, which they will be expected to prepare in advance. Finished works for string quartet are not required by the start of the course.

A public presentation will be held at the end of the week to present work done during the workshop.

The cost is CAN $650. Participants will be expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation. The program will take place in Simon Fraser University’s new cultural facility, the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, in downtown Vancouver.

Applicants should submit scores and live recordings (if available) of two recent compositions in any genre; a short outline for a creatively ambitious new work for string quartet; and a resumé, to: office@quatuorbozzini.ca. Deadline for applications to be received is Monday, February 4th, 2013. Participants will be announced by mid-March.
