Invitation to Composers is a unique, two-year project, funded by the European Cultural Fund, that encourages modern-day composers to write new works, inspired by celebrated musical ideas of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and enhanced by cultural elements from the composers' own indigenous heritage.
The Institute is happy to support this ground-breaking international project, with events in the United Kingdom, France and Romania.
