Australian National Academy of Music Commissions 67 Composers

THE ANAM SET, a project of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), commissions 67 composers to write a six-minute work for ANAM's young musicians to perform in 2021

The selected composers range across various genres and career stages. They will collaborate with each of ANAM's 2021 musicians to develop works to be premiered at the Abbotsford Convent from August 16 to November 30.

The project, supported by the Commonwealth Government’s RISE fund, aims to revitalize Australian composition and performance.

“The response to The ANAM Set from Australian composers has been amazing – overwhelming both in scale and enthusiasm, I wish we had a hundred more musicians at ANAM this year to work with even more than 67 composers!" said Paavali Jumppanen, incoming Artistic Director of ANAM.

"It’s been humbling to see the breadth of diversity, backgrounds, genres, and career paths of so many creative artists — from luminaries including Brett Dean and Deborah Cheetham, to young trailblazers such as Harry Sdraulig.

"The ANAM Set will be an incredible snapshot of Australian music at a time when it’s most needed. It’s also going to be an exciting challenge for our musicians, whom I completely trust to be up for the task. For all of us, this is such an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the richness of the Australian music scene. And personally, having been witness to the creative potential of this country I hope to see many more projects like this."
