Composer Collider Europe (CCE) is a series of transnational activities for composition students and alumni from three partner universities (Cologne, Thessaloniki, Den Haag). It offers them the opportunity to work with professional composers, professors and the musicians of Ensemble Musikfabrik. It began in 2017 and will end with a final tour in November 2020.

She will write a new work for flute (Helen Bledsoe), oboe (Peter Veale), solo clarinet in Eb (Carl Rosman), horn (Christine Chapman), trombone (Bruce Collings), tuba (Melvyn Poore), and piano (Benjamin Kobler). Cond. Christian Eggen.
