Delighted to announce that the BRAZILIAN NATIONAL THEATRE CLAUDIO SANTORO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA will be premiering a new work while at the Festival. Only two compositions were selected out of the 20 participating composers. Wild Horses don’t Break for full orchestra will have its work premiere in Brasília, Brazil this September 2018! I’m am thrilled to say the least
After submitting works to the São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival and an interview process, Keith was chosen among 20 composers from around the world to attend. The participants will write a new work for chamber ensemble to be recorded and broadcast nation wide in Brazil! ‘Besides an incredible performance of your music, you will be surrounded by individuals who are on the cutting edge of contemporary music. You will live in São Paulo and experience an environment that fosters and supports high artistry. You will receive private lessons, individual coachings of your works with professional composers and ensembles, studio recordings of your works, a concert that will be broadcast in 17 different locations around Brazil on the radio and television, as well as cultural excursions to museums, concert halls, and touristic venues. Additionally, you will form lifelong relationships that will have a significant impact on your network as a composer.’
