The Austin Symphony invites young Texas composers, ages 18 & younger, to participate in the ASO’s 3rd Annual Texas Young Composers Competition. Interested students may submit one full original (not an arrangement) orchestral composition between 5 and 7 minutes in length. Works should use standard orchestral instrumentation and normal doublings: Flutes (Piccolo), Oboes (English Horn), Clarinets (Bass Clarinet), Bassoons (Contra), Horns, Trumpets, Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion, Harp, Piano and Strings. Works requiring electronics or special effects should not be submitted. Works may not have been previously performed, recorded or published professionally. Works not adhering to these guidelines will be disqualified.

One or possibly two of the winning compositions will be played at a series of concerts performed at local Austin area high schools by the Austin Symphony Orchestra in January 2013. In addition, between 8 and 10 of the top chosen works will be premiered at the Texas Young Composers Concert at the Long Center for the Performing Arts in Austin, TX on April 3, 2013 by the Austin Symphony Orchestra. Should the winning composers reside outside of the Austin area, he/she and parent(s) will be offered travel reimbursement and hotel accommodations in Austin to attend rehearsals and performances of their work. In addition, a professional archival recording of his/her specific work in performance will be made for the composer’s personal study.

 3. A short biography and personal photo of the composer. Include name, address, phone number and email.
