NORTHERN CALIFORNIA VIOLA SOCIETY’S COMPOSER COMPETITION 2020-21
The Northern California Viola Society announces its 2020-21 Composition Contest winner and the finalists. Our winner is "Viola & Cesario" by Andrew M. Wilson of Devon, UK. The competition is for unperformed solo viola works, 3 minutes or under, composed in the last 5 years. The winning composition will be premiered by pre-professional level finalists in the NCVS Young Violist Competition on March 7, 2021, presented online.
Over 70 pieces from all over the world were submitted in November to our assembled reviewing panel of violists. It was exciting to see the international offerings and the large number of submissions. The pieces we received demonstrated a huge range of creativity and musicality. We are deeply grateful to all of the composers who took the time to share their efforts with us. Please consider applying again next year.
