Sarah has been selected – along with Alex Paxton, Allan X. Chen, Nicholas Olsen & Ninfea Cruttwell-Reade – to participate in the Royal Scottish National Orchestra’s RSNO Composers’ Hub 2018-19, the fourth annual initiative to develop the talents of individuals in the early stages of their careers.

She will be given the opportunity to write for the orchestra in a range of different contexts, develop skills and creative relationships, as well as acquire an understanding of the business of a major arts organisation.

The scheme will culminate in a public workshop in the RSNO Centre’s New Auditorium in Glasgow in April 2019, conducted by RSNO Assistant Conductor Junping Qian and led by internationally-renowned composer and Stuart MacRae, from which one work will be chosen to be performed by the RSNO as part of its 2019:20 Season.

Sarah’s participation in the RSNO Composers’ Hub is supported by the Idlewild Trust.
