Subject: Two Young Composer Competitions, and a Roland VS-2000CD workstation
I?d like to let you know about two important young composer competitions with deadlines coming up. Please pass the word along to any young composers that you think may be interested. (See below.)
First, the organization I work for, the New York Art Ensemble
is sponsoring its 12th annual Young Composer Competition for people 21 years old or younger
Pieces should be no longer than 15 minutes, and may use up to 5 performers. It?s not a song competition?no vocals. It?s for instrumental works. The deadline is January 7, 2011
. Here?s the link: 2011 Young Composer Competition
Second, our good friends at the New York Youth Symphony
are also holding a competition for composers 30 years old, or younger, called First Music
. This competition ranges from big band to orchestra works. So again, if you know any composers 30 or younger, this is a great one to let them know about. The deadline is December 31, 2010.

Finally, our good friend and fellow meetup composers Trevor Bowen
is selling his Roland VS=2000CD Digital Studio Workstation
I believe he is the original owner and the unit is in good shape.
Anyone interested should contact him at this email address: [address removed]
That's the latest. See you in January!
