Application Submission Deadline: Thursday September 22, 2022 

About the Program:

The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Otto Tausk are pleased to present the Jean Coulthard Readings and Mentorship Program. This year we will be introducing a NEW and expanded format that will span from October 15, 2022 – May 31, 2023.

The Jean Coulhard Readings were started by Rodney Sharman in 1997, to provide a learning opportunity for Vancouver’s student composers, and for the VSO to discover new musical voices.

Named in honour of one of BC’s most beloved composers, the Jean Coulthard Readings and Mentorship Program gives emerging BC composers an invaluable opportunity to develop their orchestral writing under the guidance of the VSO and have their work read by a professional orchestra. Approximately six composers will be selected to participate in the program.
