Another successful edition of the International composition internship SoundMine


It was touch and go for a while, but the 21st edition of international composition internship SoundMine was allowed to continue - provided the appropriate measures were taken!

In the inspiring environment of Grand Commandery Alden Biesen, 35 young composers set to work under guidance; in person or via digital platforms. Foreign students who could not come to Belgium due to the precautions were supported online. This way, the international aspect of the internship was still made possible!

Top teachers, Wim Henderickx, Diederik Glorieux and Jorrit Tamminga, immersed the participants for a week in composing for orchestra and/or the world of electronic music, both in group and in individual sessions.

The icing on the cake was a brilliant online show moment on Friday 10 july via live stream. An ideal sneak peek for the concert on 4 February, 2021 in collaboration with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, where their work will be performed live by a full orchestra
