Composer laureate

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra is to appoint a composer laureate for schools in the autumn to work alongside SCO musicians in Edinburgh schools. The post, part of a collaboration with City of Edinburgh Council, has been funded by a pound;98,000 award from the Scottish Arts Council National Lottery fund.

The grant allows for the creation of a number of new works which will bring young players and professional musicians together. It will also go towards setting up an online teachers' resource. For more details contact Stephen Deazley, tel 0131 478 8341; e-mail
