The Phinney Ridge Youth Orchestra is excited to announce the 2018 composition contest!
The purpose of the contest is to expand the literature for the high school level string orchestra and to encourage the creation of new music. The parts must be playable by good high school age musicians. One winner will be selected for a world-premiere concert during the 2018-2019 season.
The Phinney Ridge Youth Orchestra is a string orchestra for young artists in high school in the greater Seattle Area.
The composition contest is open to all composers regardless of age or nationality.
The composition must not have been performed publicly.
We are a small chamber orchestra so please do not write divisi parts.
Duration: 3-5 Minutes.
Scores will be evaluated based on the quality of the score, the playability of the parts, and on artistic merit. Any score that is illegible or too difficult will not be considered.
The PRYO reserves the right to change the date of performance due to programming consideration. By submitting a work competitors agree to these conditions of entry.
