Composition Contest for High School Composers - Winner gets work performed & GPO
The Music Technology program of the Music Department of Northeastern University, Boston has announced an electronic-music composition contest for high school composers. The first prize will be a cash award of $250 and a performance of the winning work on a public concert at Northeastern in Boston in the Spring, 2005. The first place winner and second place winner will receive a free copy of Cakewalk Sonar 4 Producer Edition and Garritan Personal Orchestra sample library. The music departments of both winners will also receive a copy of the programs. Deadline for receipt of works is March 25, 2005. For complete contest rules and information, click Here.
This is a great opportunity for young composers. There are talented high school students here on Northern Sounds who may qualify, or you may have a high school son or daughter or know a friend that may like to enter.
I had an opportunity to visit Northeastern last week and speak with some of the students and faculty last week. Kudos to Dr. Dennis Miller. I simply cannot believe all the talent I have seen with young people these past few weeks. Congratulations to the winners.

I would have been crushed if I'd entered that contest!
Personally, I think the top winners were in reverse order. I liked the third one the best. It was REALLY good!!! I really don't know how to describe its goodness. The second one wasn't quite as good, IMHO, but I still REALLY liked it. The first was a bit too abstract for my taste, but that's just a personal preference and doesn't have anything to do with the ability of the composer.
