Calling Young Composers! The 4th Annual Young Composer’s Competition is open to students from LCMS and from within the community.
Composers will have the opportunity to work with professional musicians during a workshop in which their pieces will be performed and critiqued by the musicians and a jury of three prominent composers on March 18, 2020.
The workshop is mandatory for all applicants.
Leonard Woods Memorial Scholarships will be awarded to the winners in each category (cash awards): Junior $200, Senior $300, College/University $500. Winning works may also receive a professional performance at the LCMS year-end Showcase concert on June 6, 2020.
We are excited to once again collaborate with visual arts students from Langley Fine Arts School, whose artwork will be used as the inspiration for this year’s young composers.
Please note that this year we have made some changes regarding instrumentation.
