Composer Lab 2019 on Blue of the Night

Composer Lab is presented by CMC, in partnership with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and RTÉ lyric fm.

Now in its fourth year, the initiative is aimed at composers who wish to write for symphony orchestra and focuses on providing these composers with a creative and open environment to deepen their experience in writing for symphonic forces, under the mentorship of composer David Fennessy.

The programme also includes discussions regarding the process of the project with the mentor composer, David Fennessy and this year's participating composers Peter Fahey, Kerry Hagan, Daniel McDermott and Sam Perkin.
