Jazz Ensemble Composition Contest For Women Composers!


Sign in to view read count
Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra
Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra (SWOJO) has created this contest to encourage the composition and performance of the highest possible quality of jazz ensemble literature playable by high schools, honor bands, college bands and professional bands alike.

The winning composition will be performed and recorded live by the Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra with a special guest artist at our upcoming concert in October as part of the 2013 Earshot Jazz Festival in Seattle.

The winner of the contest will receive a concert audio recording of their piece performed live, an honorarium, and the winning piece will be published by SWOJO or their designated publisher.

Complete details will be announced soon! Be the first to be notified when the contest is open by visiting SWOJO Composition Contest.

To learn more about Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra please visit us at SWOJO or on Facebook.

SWOJO is a 501c(3) nonprofit corporation.

SWOJO's mission is to nurture the musical, educational and artistic growth of individual musicians, to encourage women to become involved in jazz performance/composition as a career or avocation, and to foster community interest in and appreciation of jazz as an art form.

This project supported in part by the Mayor's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, City of Seattle, 4 Culture and Earshot Jazz.
