The Canton Symphony Orchestra Composer Fellowship was established to give undergraduate composers a chance to have a piece commission by a professional orchestral institution while also allowing young students the chance to play music composed for them. This fellowship is open to undergraduate composition students at a Northeast Ohio College or University (students must be enrolled at undergraduate institution at the time of their application). The aim of this fellowship is to foster young, undergraduate composers, and give Canton Youth Symphony musicians the opportunity to play new music. The fellow will work with CSO conductors and staff throughout their time as a fellow to create a piece, 10-15 minutes in length, to be performed by the Canton Youth Symphony Advanced Orchestra at their final concert of the year.
Application consists of:
Tyler Kowal of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music will have his composition performed by the Canton Youth Symphony Advanced Orchestra on May 8, 2023.
