Dolce Suono Ensemble’s Young Composers Competition: Call for Scores!

Dolce Suono Ensemble gears up for its first Young Composers Competition, in which composers 30 and under are invited to submit song-length works reflecting on Claude Debussy’s songs. The winning works will receive their world premieres, with the composers in attendance on the Dolce Suono Ensemble Presents series on Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 3:00pm at Field Concert Hall, Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. The artists are Anna Davidson, soprano, Mimi Stillman, flute, and Natalie Zhu, piano.

We are pleased to share that there will be a $200 honorarium awarded to each winning composer, thanks to a kind gift from a private sponsor. In addition, winners will participate in an Artist Conversation at the concert on Sunday, May 19, 2013 and receive an archival recording of their works.

A panel of distinguished judges will select the winners: Soprano Lucy Shelton and composers David Ludwig and Steven Stucky.
