Young Composers Competition

Pacific Chorale invites American composers under the age of 35 to submit unperformed choral works for consideration in our 2016-2017 Young Composers Competition. Submissions should be 3-6 minutes in length, for mixed voices, divisi up to SSAATTBB, a cappella or with accompaniment for piano, on text(s) by American poets.

The winner will receive:
