Congratulations to Faculty of Music PhD student Michael Taplin, who has been announced as a finalist for the Toru Takemitsu Composition Award 2023. His orchestral work, Selvedge, is one of just four works that have been selected by judge Jo Kondo out of 107 entries from 31 countries. 

Selvedge, which was originally written through the CBSO Hartley Rodgers Scholarship at Cambridge University, will be performed alongside the three other finalists, on 28 May 2023, at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall: Takemitsu Memorial.
