Red Note Ensemble is a key partner in delivering the Leverhulme Conducting Fellowship programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. As Contemporary Ensemble in Residence, Red Note supports emerging conductors on the brink of their careers, offering vital experience of working on new music repertoire with an ensemble of professional musicians, under the guidance of the Conservatoire’s Artistic Director of Conducting, Garry Walker. In 2019, Red Note will be working with fellows June-Sung Park and Joel Sanderson.
As one of the world’s leading new music ensembles, Red Note also promotes the development of composers on the RCS undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, workshopping and interpreting new pieces, offering players’-eye view feedback and support, and performing finished works at Plug (the RCS festival of new music).
RCS conductors and composers may also have the opportunity of taking their work to new audiences through Red Note’s partners in the community.
