The Young Composers Project is a year-long course where students learn to compose for orchestra. Musicians ages 8–18 explore the creative process of composition in the classroom and out – they attend TSO dress rehearsals, meet guest artists and composers, and work with TSO musicians. As the culminating final project, the TSO performs their original composition and they receive a live recording of their piece!

A FREE festival pass gets you access to every event! Workshops, lectures, Q&A sessions with our Expert Panel, and TSO performances. Explore the world of composing – Fun for all ages!
