Vahram Sarkissian - The Colors of the human voice: rediscovery.
Lecture at the 11th Symposium on Choral Music, Barcelona, Spain, 22 - 29 July, 2017
Winners announced for the 2016-2017 competition
The Esoterics is pleased to announce the winners of its 2016-2017 POLYPHONOS choral composition competition. A panel of four judges reviewed each and every anonymously submitted score to settle upon the winners of three separate awards: one national (U.S.) composer, one international composer, and one young composer under the age of 30. Each awardee will receive a US$1,000 commission for a 5-minute new work that The Esoterics will premiere at the POLYPHONOS Concert in October of 2017. The winners will also receive funds for travel and lodging to the premiere of their work next year. The Esoterics extends its sincerest thanks to all who applied to this competition. Once again, the judges’ decision was a difficult one. We hope that those of you who were not selected will enter again next year.
Vahram Sargsyan, Montréal, Québec (International Composer)
Daniel Sabzghabaei, Baltimore, Maryland (National Composer)
Conrad Asman, Cape Town, South Africa (Young Composer)
