(VANCOUVER, CANADA) - The Vancouver Chamber Choir encourages young composers (ages 8-22) in any country to submit applications to the 10th Biennial Young Composers’ Competition. It is an opportunity to compose for Canada's premiere choir, have the composition performed in the choir’s concert series, and receive a cash award!
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 5pm Friday, March 7, 2011
Entries are judged in three age categories: Elementary (8-12), Secondary (13-17) and College/University (18-22), with several special awards for the best submissions by residents of British Columbia. A panel of musicians selected by the Vancouver Chamber Choir adjudicates the competition by assessing the originality and craftsmanship of the music and, where appropriate, the words.
Finalist compositions will be performed at the concert YOUTH & MUSIC on Friday, May 6, 2011 at 8pm (Ryerson United Church, Vancouver). Cash awards will be presented to two winners in each age group and also in the special BC categories. Young composers are encouraged to seek the support of their own choir or school, which may also be eligible for an award.
