Now in its 9th season, the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival in the South of France (July 2-15) invites young composers ages 17-35 for its summer session to work with resident chamber ensembles and have their works premiered on the Festival’s concerts.

Working with living composers, commissioning new works and performing contemporary music is an integral part of a successful musical career. This composition course not only provides private instruction, composition seminars and performance opportunities, but also more importantly allows both composers and instrumentalists to collaborate on their own terms, explore, and influence the direction of music together.

The Zodiac Music Academy & Festival composition course is lead by award-winning composer Andrew List- a long-time collaborator of the Zodiac Trio (the founding ensemble of the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival).

The all-inclusive fee is $2,550 USD, which includes:

-Dorm-style accommodations
-Board (three meals per day)
-Transportation from and to the Nice International Airport
-Excursion to Nice
-All Festival activities (seminars, masterclasses, etc.)
