Perth Symphony Orchestra launch West Australia Composer’s Competition 2014!

The Perth Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to launch the inaugural WA Composer’s Competition for 2014.

We are committed to supporting local talent and endeavour to program a contemporary West Australian composition in each concert where and when possible. We are passionate about nurturing the musical careers of young composers in West Australia and aim to provide a platform for them to have their works performed at every opportunity.

All West Australian residents and/or composers currently studying in West Australia are eligible; no age limit or pre-requisite study required.

The winning composition will be performed and audio recorded by the Perth Symphony Orchestra at ‘Symphony by the Lake’ on March 8th 2014. Compositions will be judged by a panel comprising of both orchestral musicians and composers, and all decisions are final. The successful applicant will be notified by email and announced at Perth Chamber Orchestra’s ‘Beer, Bratwurst and Beethoven’ Concert on Tuesday 10th December 2013.
