The El Paso Society for Musicians of the Future (EPSMF) presents the second annual competition showcase for young composers. OM/NI – Original Music/New Ideas – fills a niche that reaches out to young composers and provides an opportunity to share original classical music. The competition was launched nationally in September 2017 to composers in two categories, the Junior Division (ages 9 to 16) and Emerging Composers (ages 17-25), for solo piano scores.
The following event is free and open to the public. Finalists and winners will be announced at the Competition Showcase as part of the Sounds of St. Mark’s Series on August 11, 2019. Finalists will be published in an OM/NI New Works Compilation. Awards will include cash prizes for the top three entries in each category. The audience will have a chance to participate in the Audience Choice Award by voting for their favorite new piano composition presented in this showcase.
More information TBA.
