Our two Opus schemes, Opus 1 and Magnum Opus, are development opportunities to help UK-based composers take the next step on their composing journey. The selected composers for both schemes will work closely with our programme directors, Britten Sinfonia musicians, and the wider Britten Sinfonia team to create new works for chamber ensemble for recording and performance, and develop their skills as composers and creatives in a holistic way.
You’ll find more information below about the schemes. If you would like to apply, you should consider which scheme will suit your current stage of compositional development and check that you are eligible in the ‘How to get involved’ section. Registration for Opus 1 will open on Friday 4 March 2022, and registration for Magnum Opus will open later this year.
