Overview

  • About Portfolio

    Sound and Music's Portfolio scheme provides a key development opportunity for composers to create new work with and for some of the UK's leading ensembles and presenters of new music.


    Portfolio enables them to develop their portfolio of compositions and gain vital artistic and practical insight and experience in working with professional ensembles and presenting organisations and delivering new work to public audiences.

    Selected composers are invited to develop a small-scale, short new work for a collaborative partner. These are developed through a series of workshops during which the composer works in close collaboration with the performers supported by an experienced composer mentor. The process culminates in a public performance of the new work within the ensemble's performance schedule.
