The Young Composers Project is an initiative ran by Birmingham Conservatoire to support the development of young composers aged 14-18 in the West Midlands. The young composers attended a number of workshops lead by composer Kirsty Devaney, Jack McNeill and a team of Conservatoire composers. Students worked alongside current Conservatoire musicians and young professionals to experiment, create new pieces and learn from each other. Students have worked on a variety of compositional techniques such as complex time signatures, using limitations, extended techniques and extending their harmonic language.

The platform will include a diverse range of music from the students including a large group arrangement developed with Jack McNeill and a world premier from past YCP student Meghan Owen.
