NWEGS Composer & Conductor-in-Residence

  • We have established official positions within NWEGS to give up-and-coming composers and conductors in our region opportunities to work and grow with us. We offer opportunities to hone their craft within the Grieg and Norwegian-focused repertoire we support working with our own musicians as well as larger organizations we collaborate with.
  • Residencies are annual, from September 1 – August 31, and may be renewed for up to 3 years.  Applications are due on a rolling deadline as positions open up.
  • If you are interested in joining us in this capacity, contact us. Both positions are currently filled. Once they open up, we’ll update this page.
