New is now. Now is new.

Omega Ensemble presents five world premiere works from the next generation of Australian compositional talent. A thrilling performance for chamber ensemble and a celebration of bold experimentation, musical risk-taking and raw talent.

Developed in collaboration with Omega Ensemble and leading international composers over a nine-months intensive program, five ambitious young composers will premiere their groundbreaking new works as the final showcase to the CoLAB: Composer Accelerator Program.

Featuring premiere works by Angus Davison (NSW), William Gardiner (NSW), Lauren McCormick (SA), Chloe Sinclair (NSW) and Alex Turley (VIC), New Now marks the program’s first annual showcase.
