The times they are a-changin’ 2016

HERMESensemble, conducted by Benjamin Haemhouts

Forum for young composers

A young composer can take lessons at the Music Academy, participate in intern-ships, and trying to get the hang of as many instruments,  but ultimately the performance of a composition remains the most important necessity.

Young composers in particular need experimentation and collaboration with professional musicians to develop their personal style and craftsmanship.

HERMESensemble offers with The Times They Are A-Changin the opportunity for young composers to carry out their work and experiment with sounds during rehearsals. The participants are then coached by professional composers (Hanne Deneire, Mathias Coppens and Bram Van Camp).

This results in an annual final concert in the concert hall of AMUZ, conducted by Benjamin Haemhouts.
