ACDA-PA is sponsoring a Student Composer Competition with a $500.00 prize for the winning choral composition. Current undergraduate student composers who either reside or study in Pennsylvania are eligible to submit original compositions, not arrangements of pre-existing works, for the competition via the ACDA-PA website. The compositions must be 3-5 minutes in length, unaccompanied or piano accompaniment, and for SATB voices, divisi is acceptable. See the ACDA PA website for official guidelines and requirements. Deadline for submission is March 15, 2020.
For more information, see the composition competition page under the EVENTS menu tab.
