Symphonic Wind Band Composition Competition

10 Aug - 15 Nov, 2020

The Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps Symphonic Band is pleased to announce its 2020 Composition Competition.

1. The competition is open to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) composers who live in the United States and its territories. We encourage LGBTQ+ composers and composers local to New York City to apply.
2. Only one work per composer will be considered.
3. Preference will be given to unperformed works written in 2020.
4. Works must be for full Symphonic Wind Band (see instrumentation below). Works with soloists, either instrumental or vocal, are not eligible. Works with electronics or chorus are not eligible.

With so much uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we cannot guarantee a live concert date, but the goal is to select one 8-10 minute work, to be performed at our April 2021 concert at Symphony Space. We will also select one 3-minute work for a virtual recording in November 2020.
Closing date: 15 Nov 2020
