Composition Competition Results

Hello All!

We are happy to announce that the winner for the composition competition has been selected. We received a wonderfully overwhelming amount of submissions. Unfortunately, with the sheer volume of submissions to go through and the weather barriers such as the hurricane, we were a bit slow in the decision making process. However, we are happy to finally announce the winner and three finalists.

The winner, Anna Rubin, won with the piece Consulting the Oracle for Flute and Alto Flute. The three finalists were Cynthia Folio, Dafina Zeqiri, Tamar Muskal.  Make sure to mark your calendars for the March Festival where you can hear this piece performed!

We are extremely pleased at the turnout of submissions. If you submitted this year, or thought about submitting, please check back next fall and submit your wonderful work.
