The Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra announces the first annual Jazz Ensemble Composition Contest for Women!
All entries for the 2013 contest must feature a trumpet soloist or at least contain a significant trumpet solo portion. Entries will be accepted from women only.
This contest has been created to encourage the composition and performance of the highest possible quality of jazz ensemble literature playable by high schools, honor bands, college bands and professional bands alike. The winning composition will be performed and recorded live by the Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra with a special guest artist (TBA) at our upcoming concert in October as part of the 2013 Earshot Jazz Festival in Seattle.
The winner of the contest will receive a concert audio recording of their piece performed live, an honorarium, and the winning piece will be published by SWOJO or their designated publisher.
Complete details will be announced soon!
