A week from now eight composers will take off for their second trip to China! All were chosen by the SMCQ to take part in an international composers competition in Shanghai. There’s a real sense of anticipation as all prepare to hear the premieres of works commissioned from them by the SMCQ*, but performed by the Shanghai Orchestra during the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival. Follow their journey and write to them on the SMCQ in Shanghai blog: http://smcqshanghai.wordpress.com/.
