Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers’ Program

The Cybec Foundation supports the MSO in organising and running the Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers’ Program each year.

Annually the program selects four participants to be mentored by leading composers across Australia and each composer is commissioned to write a 10-minute piece.

Since the program was introduced in 2003, 50 composers from across Australia have had works commissioned and performed by the MSO. Most have continued onto widely diverse creative practices and the MSO has offered several subsequent commissions to graduates of the program.
