Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble 2014 Emerging Composers Competition


The Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble is pleased to announce its second annual Emerging Composers Competition, designed to foster the creation and performance of new works for mixed chorus.

Submission Guidelines

Works must be:

  • Scored for SATB a cappella (some divisi acceptable); or
  • Scored for SATB and string quartet; or
  • Scored for SATB and solo violin, viola or cello, or any combination of these instruments
  • Approximately 3-5 minutes in length
  • Unpublished and unperformed
  • Submission of midi realizations is encouraged, but not required.

Works will be premiered in March 2014 as part of a program entitled Language of Birds, featuring a piece by the same title for choir and string quartet by Veronika Krausas, as well as Janequin’s Chant des Oiseaux.  Some preference may be given to pieces that fit this theme.

Composers should be in the early stages of their professional careers, without substantial publishing credit, national awards or commissions.  There is no age limit.
