… and welcome to the University of St Andrews 600th Anniversary Composition Competition Blog.
This blog is going to be used to keep people updated on all aspects of the 600th Competition, though we’re also hoping to intersperse it with general news about the orchestra, reflections on modern music, and thoughts on composition.
There will be a few of us writing, and we hope you won’t read anything on here as being the ‘party line’, or being hints as to what we’re looking for in terms of entries. We don’t want to influence you in that direction: we’re hoping to get a diverse selection of pieces, and we’ve been deliberately open about style in our call for entries.
Do check back from time to time, and feel free to respond to our posts…
