Soundstream launches 2012 National Young Composers Award
Soundstream: Adelaide New Music Festival has launched the 2012
National Young Composers' Award, open to Australian composers 30
years and under.
There are 2 Awards in the form of commissions, valued at $5000 and $2000, with a People's Choice Prize of $1500, sponsored by Winston Music. All finalists' domestic airfares and accommodation will be covered by the Soundstream: Adelaide New Music Festival, and the Finals Performance will take place on Saturday October 13th as part of the Festival, to be performed by Soundstream Collective.
These awards are a welcome addition to the landscape of opportunities for composers, and with the launch of the Soundstream Collective Ensemble in 2011 (supported by the University of Adelaide), add further momentum to the festival and its reach.
Applications close on Monday June 18th, 2012.
