Expressions of Interest: Regional residency for musicians living with disability - MusicNSW

The Orange Regional Conservatorium invites expressions of interest nationally from professional musicians living with disability, for the Rewriting the Score residency and performance project.

Rewriting the Score is a five day, full-time residency where 13 musicians with and without disability will work together, led by an artistic director and music coordinators from Orange Regional Conservatorium, to create new music. The project will culminate in a concert performance in May at the Orange Regional Conservatorium. A recital at the new Orange hospital will also take place to enhance links between art, creativity, inclusion and wellbeing.
