Singing City Prize for Young Composers 2012
Date: March 30, 2011
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. 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 would need to continue on his or her creative journey. The Singing City community of singers and listeners is also enriched by a yearly infusion of fresh, diverse choral music.
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.
Submissions for the 2012 prize are due by Friday, December 2, 2011.For more information, call (215) 569-9067 or visit: www.singingcity.org to download the brochure and application.
