This January, I participated in the Composition Program at the 2020 Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) National Music Camp (NMC) and it was an unforgettable experience! Not only did I learn so much about my craft, but I also met some amazing and inspiring people, including my fellow composition participants Sophie Van Dijk, Alexander Voltz and Victor Arul, and our fantastic mentor Australian-American composer Melody Eötvös.
After a very busy end to last year working on a large-scale commission, I’ve now found time to reflect on my experiences working with the Flinders Quartet.
Hi, I’m Claire! I’m a composer of contemporary classical music based in Hobart, Tasmania.
