About Tenso Young Composers Workshop
The development of new choral repertoire is one of Tenso’s primary missions. Using (fragments of) a score as starting point, the goal of the workshops is to make room for a significant contribution from all participants and to explore various elements such as dramatic effects, vocal range and colour, text setting, and other compositional tools.
The workshop sessions result in an award, consisting of a commission to write a new work, to be premiered by one of the members of the Tenso network. Read more about Tenso Young Composers Workshop.
