Established nearly 30 years ago by Oliver Knussen and Colin Matthews, this course brings together composers, singers and instrumentalists to create new works as well as explore contemporary classics from the 20th and 21st century.

The young artists are coached by composers Colin Matthews, Mark-Anthony Turnage and soprano Claire Booth alongside hugely experienced instrumental tutors, and will return to premiere the finished new works in the 2020 Aldeburgh Festival.
