Brunswick Music Festival Announces Composition Competition

February 1, 2016

BRUNSWICK, ME — Bowdoin International Music Festival is currently accepting applications for the 9th Annual Composition Competition. The 2016 competition is for works written for string quartet (2 violins, viola, violoncello). To be eligible composers must be students living within the United States and be under the age of 35. The selected work will be premiered during Bowdoin’s 2016 Gamper Festival of Contemporary Music (July 28-31, 2016).

This is an outstanding opportunity for a young composer to have his or her work performed during a major music festival. “Every year we look forward to the Gamper Festival,” said Artistic co-director Phillip Ying. “The composition competition makes the Festival even more special. We can’t wait to discover the piece of music and watch as an experienced string quartet brings it to life for our audiences and the composer.”

A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the winning composer. A modest travel stipend, lodging, and a recording of the work will also be provided. For complete details visit the Festival’s website at bowdoinfestival.org.
