NECOM Composition Competition
One of the world’s most lucrative composition prizes is being hosted by the New England Conservatorium of Music! With the generous sponsorship of Legal Minds in Armidale, NECOM is able to offer two major prizes to help establish an important competition for amateur composers. Worldwide interest has already been garnered for this event, with submissions from Finland and the USA already amongst the early entries. Importantly, this contest is helping to draw attention to NECOM’s Composition Conference in October, a first for regional Australia.
Composers are invited to write for either a combination of stringed instruments (eg a quartet or string ensemble) or for a duo sonata with piano. With the anticipation of receiving dozens of original works for stringed instruments, NECOM will have a great selection of new compositions from emerging composers to offer HSC students and our own outstanding string players. With $9,000 in total prize money on offer, tell your composer friends to start writing!
1st prize – $5000 AUD
2nd prize – $1000 AUD
String & Piano Sonata or Set of Miniatures
