Composition seminars

These seminars normally run every Tuesday from 4.00pm–5.30pm in the Rymer Auditorium. Some are given by visiting speakers and others are given by members of staff and postgraduate students. They provide the main forum for group discussion, and often continue in less formal surroundings into the evening. Undergraduate composers who would like to attend these postgraduate seminars are very welcome.
