The Netherlands-based Australian composer Kate Moore will be the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s composer-in-residence for 2019, the orchestra has revealed as part of its 2019 season announcement. Something of a coup for the ensemble, it will be the first Australian orchestra to feature the acclaimed composer in such a significant way. The WSO will premiere two of Moore’s works, including a new Piano Concerto commissioned by the orchestra.

“I could not be more delighted that one of Australia’s emerging composer superstars Kate Moore, has agreed to be our 2019 Composer-in-Residence,” WSO Chief Conductor Dr Nicholas Milton AM said in his Artistic Director’s Message.
