Andrea Ek receives this year's scholarship in composition

Andrea Ek

Andrea is studying the last semester of the Artistic bachelor's program in composition and is awarded this year's Annik and Lars Leander scholarship of SEK 35,000.

Congratulations Andrea, you are the twenty-third students who are awarded this scholarship, please tell us how you will use it!
-Thank you! I will go to Paris and take private lessons from various composers that have been significant to my musical development. It will be an inspirational journey for educational purposes.

Is this the first time you apply?
-Yes it is.

Do you have any tips on how to put together a good application?
-Apply for something you are genuinely interested in and be as clear as possible!

What does your plan look like moving forward?
-My plan is to work and continue composing during next year at the same time as I think about how and where I want to continue my education. I think it might be good to stop and think sometimes.
