*NEW PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT* THE ARC PROJECT: DIGITAL ENSEMBLES EDITION
Similar to the first Digital Edition, composers will be paired up with performers to create collaborative new works which will be shared on The Arc Project YouTube channel. This time, we will be pairing composers with small ensembles (maximum four performers). This project is open to all. Performers may apply either as premade ensembles or as individuals. In the latter case, we will put performers into new ensembles for the project. Composers may apply to be performers as well, but will have to complete the form twice.
Here is the link to the form: https://forms.gle/wz7Mjej5byK2SQog8
Deadline for registering will be 5pm GMT on Thursday 31st December.
*NEW PROJECT ANNOUNCMENT* BEYOND 88
We are excited to announce our first project of 2021, Beyond 88. This will be the first of three projects next year.
With this project, we hope to encourage the creation of new piano works that explore techniques beyond the confines of the keyboard. Do sign up if you are interested!
Click here for the application form. The deadline for applications is 10th November 2020.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19, we have been forced (as many in the music industry have) to postpone our Songs on Thomas Hardy. As such, we have launched this digital project where composers and performers alike collaborate to create new works that are recorded and performed from home!

INTRODUCING CONTEMPORARY COMPOSITION
We've just released the first video from our new YouTube series, "Introducing Contemporary Composition". Every month, we'll be uploading a video with tips for performers and composers about different instruments.
Our first one featuring professional cellist, Rebecca Burden is out now! You can find it under the "Introducing Contemporary Composition" page on our website or head over to our YouTube channel.
THE ARC PROJECT RECOMMENDS
New mini-project alert! Head over to our Instagram page every Monday for a new music recommendation. If you would like to get involved, send us your recommendation along with a few words on what makes the piece so special to you!
Following the success of our first concert, The Arc Project is returning to the York Unitarian Chapel with the first of three projects in 2020, Songs on Thomas Hardy. This concert will feature nine new pieces created through collaborations between composers and ensembles which use and draw influence from the life and work of Thomas Hardy.
INAUGURAL CONCERT COMPLETE
Thank you to everyone who supported our first concert! The night was a success and we received a lot of great feedback to help us going forward.
We had a great meeting yesterday discussing the future of the group and in particular how we can expand going forward. If you are interested in joining The Arc Project in any capacity, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
KICKSTART THIS PROJECT
We have just launched a Kickstarter to help fund the costs of the concert. Everyone has been working so hard to bring this project to life and we are excited for you guys to see it!
We would be grateful for any bit of money that you can give to the project. If you can't contribute, please help us out by liking and/or sharing it to your friends and family!
We have just finalised the details for our first ever concert! The project we have been working on involves 10 composer-performer pairs collaborating to produce new music. We selected each pair by random to encourage collaborations between composers from different stylistic backgrounds.
Tickets can be bought on the door or by emailing us at
