ZêzereArts Festival Composers in Residence

A key element of the ZêzereArts Festival since 2017 has been the presence of a composer in residence to enrich our programming and to increase our connection with 'living' music.

It was a great honour for the ZêzereArts artistic team and the 2017 Zêzerearts participants that the distinguished Portuguese composer, Eurico Carrapatoso accepted our invitation to be the first ZêzereArts Festival Composer in Residence. We have been fortunate to continue to welcome illustrious composers to our annual Festival, David Miguel in 2018 and Fernando Lapa in 2019.

We are delighted to welcome César Viana as the ZêzereArts Fetival Composer in Residence for 2020. César Viana is writing a new work to be performed for the first time at the 2020 festival.
