Ithaca College Jazz Ensemble Composition Contest

The Ithaca College Jazz Ensemble is excited to announce the David P (’60) and Susan W Wohlhueter 2019-20 Composition Contest.

The contest has been created to encourage composers to write for the jazz ensemble and to give Ithaca College students the experience of evaluating and performing new music. Students will participate in the judging of the contest. The winner of the contest will receive a prize of $1,000 plus a concert recording of their piece with the Ithaca College Jazz Ensemble. This year our guest artist at the culminating concert on December 7, 2019, will be world-renowned saxophonist Braxton Cook who will perform the winning piece with the Jazz Ensemble.

Submissions must be received no later than Friday, October 4, 2019.
