Carl Orff Composition Competition 19/20: The "Orff Schulwerk"

05 Sep 2019 - 29 Feb 2020

We're celebrating Carl Orff's 125th birthday next year. The idea of ​​the new competition is based on his vision that compositions can promote an understanding of other cultures. Therefore, the theme of this competition should be a freely selectable folk song from the mother tongue of the composer. Essentially, children's works should be sung and played with a selection of Orff children's instruments.

We would be very happy, if you want to deal with it and make your own contribution!

10 compositions will be nominated for the final concert. The Carl Orff Competition e.V. will provide the selected composers paid round trip expenses to the final concert in Germany, 2 overnight stays, a dress rehearsal and guided tour with good musicians and an attractive
supporting program for two days. The prize money amounts awarded to the 1st , 2nd , 3rd places will be 5,000.00, 3,000.00 and 1,000,00 Euros respectively.

The public evaluation will take place between March 15, and April 30, 20
Closing date: 29 Feb 2020
