NMC is the digital partner of the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Composers’ Academy. Each year the scheme offers a group of talented emerging composers the opportunity to write an original chamber work for an ensemble of Philharmonia players. The composers undertake a year of training and mentoring, including with NMC, culminating in a commission for a 10-minute work which is premiered in a Music of Today concert at Royal Festival Hall and recorded for digital release on NMC.
