The New York Composers Circle, the largest New York area composers’ cooperative, is pleased to announce its second annual composition competition, open to composers of all ages who live in the New York metropolitan area, other than NYCC members. The winning composition will be performed at one of the NYCC’s concerts during the 2008-2009 season, and the winner will also receive one year’s free membership in the NYCC. Please submit no more than one score, together with a CD (or tape), of a solo or chamber ensemble work preferably 6-12 minutes in length, but in any case not more than 15 minutes, and scored for not more than six performers. The work should not have been previously performed. Include in your covering letter a brief bio, a brief program note for your work, and contact information (phone, and e-mail and postal addresses). All submissions must be accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope, or they will be discarded after the winner is announced. The deadline for receipt is Monday, Sept. 8th.
