GroundSwell had an enthusiastic response to its 2018-19 Emerging Composers Competition this year. A jury of three, composed of one member of each organization–the New York City-based TAK Ensemble; Cluster: New Music + Integrated Arts Festival; and GroundSwell–spent a busy day evaluating the vast range of exciting new works. It was tough, but the jury came to a final decision!
The winners for GroundSwell’s Emerging Composers Competition, 2018-19 are:
William Kuo, first prize & and commission with TAK Ensemble
Bekah Simms, second prize
Calum Jensen, third prize
Honourable mentions go to Amy Brandon and Alissa Cheung.
Congratulations to all of you!
