iSING! 2020 Composition Competition

07 Jan - 01 Mar, 2020

The iSING! International Young Artists Festival is a vocal festival with international repute which aims at training young singers from the West to sing in Chinese on both Chinese and Western operatic and concert stage. At iSING!, we firmly believe in the power of the song, in connecting cultures and in renewing itself through fresh creations.

The iSING! Competition Committee invites composers from China and abroad to submit samples for qualification to receive commissions to set poems to music to be sung in Chinese. Tang Dynasty was a time of peace and prosperity in China. Its poetry was the apogee of poems and songs of ancient China, unsurpassed for centuries since in its literary and artistic excellence.

There will be 10 winners, each receiving a $10,000 award. There will be five (5) Honorable Mention awards of $2,000 each.

This will be the first time in the world that a concert of original compositions set to classical Chinese poetry is commissioned and produced.
Closing date: 01 Mar 2020
