The Upbeat 2018

Children compose, adults perform

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 will be finished in a workshop with the help of composers and music professionals. After this process the new musical compositions are performed by music professionals. Compositions are performed as a part of an ambitious and elegant concert programme in Silfurberg on the start date of Children’s Culture Festival in Reykjavik. All pieces performed at the concert will receive a the Upbeat Composition Award.

The project is open to everyone from the age 10 to 15, living in the big Reykjavík area. Please submit the pieces before February 12th to upptakturinn@gmail.com
