WSMTA is pleased to announce the 2018 Young Composers Project. This competition gives students the opportunity to submit their compositions for judging and comments by qualified adjudicators. These adjudicators are college professors and/or private teachers whose area of expertise is composition.
The project provides educational feedback, a goal-setting format, and a focus on music that students love—their own compositions. Adjudicators select a first, second and third place composition for each grade level giving written comments. Certificates are awarded to all participants, and a small monetary prize is awarded to each first place winner (see the rules and guidelines form for details). First place winners are invited to perform their compositions at the WSMTA Conference each summer.
The deadline for entries to year’s Young Composers Project is Tuesday, February 20, 2018. Direct all questions to Martin Kennedy, Young Composers Project Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
