The Orange Regional Conservatorium invites expressions of interest nationally from professional musicians living with disability, for the Rewriting the Score residency and performance project.

 

Rewriting the Score is a five day, full-time residency where 13 musicians with and without disability will work together, led by an artistic director and music coordinators from Orange Regional Conservatorium, to create new music.  The project will culminate in a concert performance in May at the Orange Regional Conservatorium. A recital at the new Orange hospital will also take place to enhance links between art, creativity, inclusion and wellbeing.

 

Rewriting the Score - Music Residency runs from 16 to 20 April 2011 and an honorarium fee of $1,400, plus travel and accommodation expenses are included. The travel and accommodation package will also be offered to support workers/carers where required.

 

The project consists of three stages,

  • Stage One: Residency - 16 to 20 April 2011
  • Stage Two: Showing and Forum - 20 April 2011
  • Stage Three: Performance Project - 13 and 14 May 2011

The Orange Regional Conservatorium is one of seven organisations to receive Arts NSW funding for arts and disability projects during 2011. With support from Accessible Arts and the Mental Health and Drug & Alcohol services, Western NSW Local Health Network, this project will provide a high profile opportunity within an arts environment for musicians with disability.
