iCompose is an annual composition competition which invites composers of any age and experience to submit a composition inspired by works of art in the National Galleries of Scotland Online Collection. The winning pieces will be performed and recorded by an ensemble of SCO musicians and Linn Records.
Open to any adult or school pupil based in Scotland, the competition offers a range of star prizes. In addition the competition is dedicated to providing learning experiences for all composers with the chance to learn from a professional composer and to meet SCO musicians. Winning pupils also receive a creative music workshop for their whole class.
