The Upbeat – Young Composers Awards and Iceland Symphony Orchestra have joined their forces and perform Jú víst by the 11 year old Lára Rún Eggertsdóttir. The concert is called Musical Time Travel and will be this Saturday October 5th at 2PM.
Composition Award for Children and Youth gives young people the opportunity to submit a musical composition or a draft of a composition and receive support to work out their ideas with the artists.
The selected piece is then finished in a workshop with the help of composers and music professionals. After this process the new musical compositions are performed by music professionals.
The 11 year old Lára Rún Eggertsdóttir who has the winning piece this year studies at Tónskóla Sigursveins.
