2nd annual Creative Composer's Competition
Entry deadline: June 30, 2012
LONDON, ON, May 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Time is running out for young musicians eager to put their compositional skills to the test in Conservatory Canada's second annual Creative Composer's Competition.
With the entry deadline of June 30 fast approaching, submissions are coming in from all over Canada, says Conservatory Canada national executive director, Victoria Warwick.
Sponsored by CONSERVATORY CANADA™, Mayfair Music Publishing, and Long & McQuade, the contest is open to Canadian students of all ages. Entries may be written for any instrumentation and in any musical style, and should be submitted through the Conservatory Canada website.
Submissions will be judged by a panel of Conservatory Canada Board of Examiners who will provide each composer with a written evaluation of their work - and choose the top six finalists.
That's when the rest of Canada can get involved in picking a winner.
"This year we will be posting the top six compositions on our Facebook page and inviting Canadians to vote for and share their favourite," explains Warwick. "This is a great opportunity for young composers to present their work to a large audience."
Winners will be announced at the Conservatory Canada Convocation in November. Prizes will be awarded for the top 12 submissions, with the first place winner receiving a $500 Gift Card from Long & McQuade and a Roland R-05 Digital Hand-Held Recorder. Winning compositions will also be included in a new Mayfair Music Publication.
