The Upbeat 2017

Young Composers Awards

The young composers with their mentors

Upptakturinn, (the Upbeat) the Young Composers Awards is a cooperative project between the Harpa Concert Hall, the Reykjavik Children‘s Culture Festival, Iceland Art Academy of the Arts and KrakkaRÚV.

The chosen young composers, aged 10-15 years old, have recently completed workshops where they developed their compositions with composers from the Iceland Academy of the Arts and did improvisational work with students from the Music Communication program. Now the composers from the Academy of the Arts will work on completing the compositions.

It will be exiting to see and hear how the ideas of the chosen young composers have developed over the last few weeks when they will be performed by professional musicians at Harpa Concert Hall on the 25th of April at 5pm, the opening day of the Reykjavík Children´s Culture Festival.

The entrance is free and the concert is open to everyone, like all other events at the Children´s Culture Festival.
