  2. OnTime 2016 Sunrise gives composers a chance to have their music included in a new app! 

    Deadline: Wednesday, July 20th – 8 pm ET
    Genre: Classical or Jazz
    Instrumentation: Any
    Max Length: 3 minutes
    Theme: Sunrise
    Required: MP3 + Full Score (no parts)
    Prizes: Your Music on new App

    There are three ways to win in this contest:

    * Your music may be selected as one of the pieces to be included on a new app.  The app selection committee may choose as many or as few as they think would match the high quality of the app, which will showcase classical and jazz music and great composers.

    * Your music may win first, second or third place in the online Public Voting segment.  Today’s composers are learning to promote and share their music by posting invitations to listen and vote on their Facebook or other Social Media.  We applaud your efforts to make high-quality classical music and jazz accessible to everyone!

    * Your music may win the coveted Staff Pick.  After all the Public Votes are in, the Staff picks their favorite piece from among those that did not win a prize in Public Voting.

    All MP3 files must be "app-ready".  Examples: live performances or high-quality sampled performances

  3. My favorite violinist will be graduating from high school in May and going off to conservatory.  We've played together for years, and now we're looking for the most beautiful pieces ever written for violin and piano for our final concert together.  Perhaps YOU have written or will write such a beautiful piece!   The details about this competition are here:




    Good luck - hope you will join us!
