The Young Composer Concert invites Austin-area youth ages 12-18 to compose original pieces of music with the guidance of a professional mentor and as part of a collective production team. A professional ensemble then performs student pieces, with the participant work reaching new audiences - such as those listening to KMFA and KUTX.
In March 2017, members of the Hear No Evil ensemble performed pieces written by twelve students for our second annual concert.
For 2018, we are collaborating with the Austin Symphony and 250 other artists to celebrate the great Leonard Bernstein through Bernstein 100 Austin.
Students selected to participate will receive various benefits for their contributions. The third annual rendition of this concert will take place on March 25, 2018.
More details and submission guidelines coming soon!
