Cambridge Young Composer of the Year

Each year the Cambridge Young Composer of the Year competition provides a platform for exciting new compositions by young people, 17 years and under, in Cambridgeshire. Selections from this year's entries will be played at this event by the Dr K Sextet - a group of young professional musicians passionate about new music. Cambridge composer and competition judge Ewan Campbell will discuss each piece in turn and give guidance on composing techniques. The competition is jointly organised by Cambridge Music Education Outreach and Cambridge Youth Music.

The afternoon will end with the announcement of the competition winners - including the new Cambridge Young Composer of the Year!
