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 participants to be mentored by leading composers across Australia and each participant is commissioned to write a 10-minute piece. The pieces are performed in a showcase and afterwards, one of the participants will be chosen as the MSO’s Young Composer in Residence for 2012, plus commissioned to write further pieces.

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.
