PIVOT is a mentorship program for early-career Canadian composers, presented by the Canadian League of Composers (CLC), in partnership with the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) and Continuum Contemporary Music. Six composers residing across Canada will work directly with–and have their music performed by–the Continuum ensemble. Participants also take part in professional development opportunities. Each participant is matched with a mentor-composer who will act as a reference for them over a six-month period to help with their creative process and guide them as they begin work on a new composition for the Continuum ensemble. The program begins Fall 2016 and culminates with a public showcase concert in Toronto on March 25, 2017.
