On May 27, 2012, the United Christian Parish of Reston, Virginia will celebrate its 39th anniversary
with the dedication of its new worship, program and administrative spaces. We as a church
actively seek to encourage musicians to use and develop the talents they have been given. In this light,
we are excited to announce our first ever Commission Competition for Young Composers.
We invite choral composers aged 35 and under to apply to win a $2,000 commission for the
Adult Choir of the United Christian Parish. Applicants should submit one to three samples of their
work for consideration by January 1, 2012. Applications will be evaluated by our panel of judges,
and a winner will be announced by January 17, 2012.
