Singing City Prize for Young Composers 2011
Date: March 11, 2010
Location: Pennsylvania, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
The Singing City Prize for Young Composers is a national choral music competition for talented young musicians between the ages of 15 and 30.
Singing City invites young musicians to submit original choral compositions arranged for SATB, 3-5 minutes in length. Submitted works undergo a rigorous jury process, after which winners and runners up are chosen in each of two categories:
Ages 15-18 (High School)
Cash prizes are awarded for a winner and a runner up in each age group. The First Prize compositions will be performed by Singing City Choir at a concert event where the young composers are honored and presented with cash awards.
The overall goal is to maximize the involvement of students in the creative process and to be a valuable music education resource for the entire community. This competition may be the impetus and encouragement that a young composer needs to continue on his or her creative journey.
