If you yourself are a young composer, or you have students/colleagues who are young composers, this is a great opportunity for you! The Capital Hearings have launched their 8th Annual Young Composers Competition.
We are welcoming submission of compositions for mixed, unaccompanied vocal ensemble of 12 to 14 voices. This year, our 8th Annual Young Composers Competition is eager to hear your thoughts on how Light of any kind interacts with your world. If you feel like you have something to say–or find that something you’ve already written might speak to us – we’d love to hear it!
All U.S. & Canadian residents age 18-40 are welcome to submit a 2-5 minute original composition (arranged for mixed, unaccompanied choir) related to this theme, and we especially welcome submissions from unique or underrepresented perspectives – and in unique or underrepresented styles.
More information on the theme, guidelines for submissions, and submission instructions can be found at this link: https://www.thecapitalhearings.com/competition/
Submissions are due by June 15, 2022, and a prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the winner. All applicants will be notified of the final decision by July 15, 2022.
