About this event

This event is now fully booked with a waiting list. You can sign up for the waiting list and we will notify you if a place becomes available.

The BBC Proms Inspire scheme is for budding composers aged 12 to 18 who want to write their own music. The scheme provides you with a friendly environment to share ideas, participate in workshops, meet other young composers and develop your musical creativity.

Explore contemporary choral writing with acclaimed composer Eric Whitacre and the BBC Singers. Young composers will be invited to submit their own short choral compositions and Eric will select four of these to work on in the Session. There will also be the opportunity to hear Eric’s music performed live and to ask him and the BBC Singers questions about the composition process.

All young composers who enter this year’s Inspire Young Composers’ Competition or attend an Inspire Lab will be offered priority booking at this season’s Inspire Sessions in June 2015. Any remaining places will be opened to the public at 10am on Friday 5 June. Places are limited and must be reserved in advance.

This event will take place 14:00-16:30.
