2018-19 Emerging Composers Competition Results

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!
