Saturday, April 26th, 10am-3pm at Emlen Hall in Blue Hill.
The Bagaduce Music Lending Library’s annual Young Composers' Competition, which began in 1996, encourages all Maine students, high school age and below, to create & perform original works and develop their musical notation skills. Most importantly, the competition puts promising music students in dialogue with professional composers who provide written and face-to-face feedback about the students’ original works.
Many of Maine’s talented young musicians have participated in the Competition and have performed their original music at our Festival in April in Blue Hill, Maine. The Library’s Young Composer’s project fills an important niche in the musical education of Maine’s students.
Come and hear them perform their compositions with Liza Rey a jazz harpist and composer, as Keynote speaker.
