2013 Junior Composers: Words+Music
VocalEssence: Choral Composition "Call for Scores"
In preparation for our 2013 summer programs, we are formally inviting our students to compose a work for choir (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). These pieces should be 2-4 minutes in length, and should be submitted electronically (via pdf or Finale file) to Seth Custer no later than June 1, 2013. Selected choral works will be read by VocalEssence at the 2013 Junior Composers summer programs. More details to follow.
Art Song "Call for Scores"
In addition to choral compositions, we are formally inviting our students to compose a work for soprano solist and piano. These pieces should be 2-4 minutes in length, and should be submitted electronically (via pdf or Finale file) to Seth Custer no later than June 1, 2013. A professional soprano soloist will select three pieces written by Junior Composers to perform in a salon during the second Junior Composers Institute and Junior Composers Songwriters.
Additional Opportunity: Minnesota Sinfonia Composition Contest
Jay Fishman, Artistic Director of the Minnesota Sinfonia, has extended a call for submissions to the 3rd annual Orchestra Composition Contest.
