Sousa-ABA-Ostwald Composition Contest


I hope this email finds you well and in good health! We are currently accepting entries for the 2020 Sousa-ABA-Ostwald Composition Contest. If you are aware of a particularly fine work written for band in the past few years, I encourage you to contact the composer and make him or her aware of this opportunity.

For this year's contest, we are considering Grade V-VI works written since August 1, 2017. Deadline for entry is August 1, 2020. Details can be found on the American Bandmasters Association website:

Thank you for supporting the Sousa-ABA-Ostwald Award!

Warm Regards,
