Ruthless Jabiru partners with Sound and Music for Portfolio composer opportunity

Ruthless Jabiru is pleased to announce a partnership with Sound and Music, the national agency for New music and sound art in the UK.

The orchestra will collaborate with Sound and Music on its Portfolio scheme, which provides a key development opportunity for emerging composers to create new work with and for some of the UK’s leading ensembles and presenters of new music.

Sound and Music are now accepting applications from UK-based composers for an opportunity to work with Ruthless Jabiru. Participating composers will develop their pieces in two workshops with the orchestra, with public premieres of the works to be given in 2014. The application deadline is noon on 23 July 2013.

Ruthless Jabiru receives Julian Baring Award

Ruthless Jabiru has been awarded the 2013 Julian Baring Award from the Tait Memorial Trust. The Tait Trust supports young Australian performing artists pursuing career development in the UK. The Trust was formed in 1992 in memory of Sir Frank and Viola, Lady Tait, and of the Tait brothers, who played an important role in the establishment of the performing arts in Australia. The Julian Baring Award honours the late husband of the Trust’s founding Chairman, Isla Baring OAM.
