Lirit New Composition Award 2019

It’s that time of year again! For the second time, we are inviting composers to submit new compositions, but this time with a twist. We are providing the poem! Jill Solnicki has given us permission to set her whimsical poem, “The Last Note”, to music. Due date is May 13, 2019.

Audience members at our Toronto concert last May heard Jill as the wonderful Narrator in the songs by composer Andrea Clearfield.

Here are the details and the poem.

LIRIT NEW COMPOSITION AWARD 2019

The Last Note

Lirit New Composition Award

 

This first post is really a birth announcement, hence the breathless descriptors! It is the birth of our new project, an award for the creation of a new piece of music, to be performed by Lirit Women’s Chamber Choir.

We are thrilled and excited to announce the Lirit New Composition Award. The chosen piece will be performed during our next year’s concert season, and the composer will receive $1,500. Lirit is able to sponsor this initiative thanks to the financial support of the  Judy Dan Arts and Education Award. The winner will be announced at our June 3 concert in Toronto.
