National Sawdust, in Brooklyn, New York City is currently accepting applications for its 3rd annual, Hildegard Competition – open to support rising female, non-binary genderqueer composers.
Three winners will be selected, with each to receive US $7,000, a commission, a performance and recording by the National Sawdust Ensemble - as well as mentorship from this year’s judges.
The 2020 jury will comprise: Paola Prestini, Angelica Negron, Gavin Rayna Russom and Joan LaBarbara.
“We are really excited to offer this competition to represent female, trans and nonbinary applicants, in the belief that if you don’t articulate who opportunities are for, you miss potential applicants who need this specific platform,” National Sawdust Artistic Director and jury member Paola Prestini said.
Funding for the Hildegard Competition generously provided by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
Applications to be received by the 29th of November, 2019.
