Ensemble Altera Second Annual Composition Competition

Composers are invited to submit a new work for Ensemble Altera’s second annual Composition Competition. The winning work(s) will be premiered and recorded by the ensemble as part of its summer project, The Lamb’s Journey. A prize fund of $500 is available.

Composers are invited to set William Blake’s poem, "The Lamb" as an a cappella composition lasting between three and five minutes, scored for any combination of mixed voices up to eight parts. The competition is open to all composers, regardless of age or experience. The deadline for submissions is Friday July 15, 2022.

The competition will be judged by a specially convened panel including at least one academician, one industry professional, and one member of the ensemble. The panel reserves the right to divide the prize money between multiple winners if there is no consensus, or to choose no winner if none of the submissions meets a minimum artistic standard. The deadline for submissions is Friday, July 15, 2022.
