The Florence Price Commission Competition

In the summer of 2020, in response to a generous gift from long time singer, patron, and former Board Chair Diane Kresh, the WMC board approved the creation of the annual Florence Price Commission Competition, offering a $5,000.00 commission to promote and celebrate Black Americans’ contributions to the field of choral music. The competition is named after the first African American woman to be nationally recognized as a symphonic composer. In its inaugural year (2022) the Price competition welcomes applications from all Black trans women, Black cis women, and Black non-binary people that are early-to mid-career American composers. The competition will open to all early- to mid-career Black American composers in odd-numbered years.

The first public Call for Scores is scheduled for January 14th, 2022 and will be open until Florence Price’s birthday, April 9th, 2022.
