Sybarite Chamber Composition Contest

This contest is open to composers of all ages and nationalities. The winner of the 2007 contest will receive a $500 cash award, a performance by the Sybarite Chamber Players on their concert season, and a compact disc recording of the performance.


Works submitted must be for the following quintet instrumentation: 2 Violins, Viola, cello and double Bass. Works using other instruments will not be considered. Works with tape are eligible

deadline: November 30 2007 (deadline)

fee: $25 USD

(This is rather steep. Composers are encourage to NOT enter contests where the fees pay for the award, as these are basically a lottery. I don't have any knowledge of this prize in particular.)
