BASCA is working with the BBC Singers to offer composers the chance to write a score for a workshop and concert inspired by the Italian madrigal tradition.
On Tuesday 4 October the Singers will give a workshop led by Judith Weir at BBC’s Madia Vale Studios. On Friday 7 October they will give a concert conducted by James Morgan at St Giles’ Cripplegate featuring works selected from submissions by BASCA members alongside other works from featured European countries.
BASCA Standard and Professional members are invited to submit works inspired in some way by madrigals either for the workshop or for the concert.
