Our world has unmistakably changed. Our public attention has shifted toward new urgencies (COVID, racism, policing, economic inequality, media influence, disinformation, echo chambers, personal freedom versus public good….)
We are looking for new and unperformed compositions written in response to the current situation in the world—emotions, fears, humor, hope evoked, etc.
We also encourage submissions that may explore new modes of performance with social distancing or alternate technologies in mind. (Full performance notes are requested for works exploring alternate performance methods.) Nobody is sure when in-person group acoustic performance can safely return, so innovative approaches are welcome.
The Camerata Composition Prize is open for entries to composers anywhere in the world each year, with winners announced a few weeks after the deadline for submissions. Our distinguished jury of composition and choral conducting faculty at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) evaluate the anonymously submitted scores.
