Composition Contest

Our Solo Percussion Composition Contest window has CLOSED and we are no longer accepting entries. We are in the process of ensuring that the anonymous entries are sent along to our contest judges. Details are below:

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Music submissions are accepted until February 28, 2021. Winner will be announced May 2021.
 
Application Fee: $25.00 USD
 
In addition, we believe our musical community is enriched and enhanced by diversity amongst a number of dimensions including race, ethnicity and national origins, gender and gender identity, sexuality, class, and religion. We are especially committed to increasing the representation of those populations that have been historically underrepresented in “classical” composition. All compositions will be given complete and careful consideration.
