Composition Competition

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.

We are pleased to announce the results of the 2016 ACO Composition Competition:

Dance Rhapsody will be performed by the orchestra during the 2016-17 or 2017-18 season. Sinfonia Concertante will be performed during the 2017-18 or 2018-19 season.

Stay tuned for news of our next contest.
