Thailand International Composition Festival
TPO is pleased to join with the Thailand International Composition Festival for its 14th year. The Thailand International Composition Festival (TICF) was established with the goal of improving the standard of Composition Education in Thailand and Southeast Asia. Founded in 2005 by the award-winning Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen, TICF has been the growing focus for Contemporary Music in Thailand since its inception. Composers and performers from all over the world have convened to provide major contributions to the festival.
