The ACO believes in the cultivation of new music and giving up-and-coming composers the opportunity to have their music performed. Every two years, composers from around the world submit their compositions for the opportunity to have their piece performed by the ACO in one of their regular concerts and the cash prize of $1,000.
Thanks to the nearly 40 composers who submitted an entry to the 2013 ACO Composition Contest by the August 1, 2013 deadline. Each composition will be reviewed by a panel of three judges with the winner announced when the decision is reached. Stay tuned -- the winner's name and composition will be posted here.
Our next contest will be announced for 2015.
