As part of its year-long 10th Birthday Celebrations, The Galway Music Residency has announced a call for submissions! The residency is seeking a composer (Irish or Irish–based) to write a piece of music in celebration of a decade of music in Galway. The piece will be written for the current Galway Ensemble in Residence; ConTempo Quartet.

 This call for submission is unique in that it also comes with a Composer in Residence posting, the first of its kind in the ten year history of the residency. As part of its on-going programme, The Galway Music Residency regularly hosts guest artists in Galway. Guests play an active role in the overall programme during their period in Galway and the Composer in Residence will do so with regular visits to the city, leading workshops and working closely with ConTempo towards the final work which will be premiered as part of the Residency’s first ever Music Festival in February 2013.

The role of the successful candidate will include regular visits to Galway to work closely with ConTempo Quartet. It will also entail a number of schools visits and composition workshops as part of our education initiative. The residency will run from September 2012 to February 2013.

Applications are now being accepted. The closing date is 24 August 2012.
