PMEA Composition Program

2021-22 PMEA Composition Program Information

PMEA is pleased to once again sponsor a composition program for PMEA members and their students in conjunction with the 2022 PMEA Annual In-service Conference, April 6 – 9 at the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center in the Poconos. There are four categories for students and two categories for members. Selected compositions will be featured during the annual conference. The purpose of the composition program is to promote and encourage composers of all ages to create music and to explore the way that sounds are put together in an appropriate way. Many future composers are today’s music students and PMEA members, and we are striving to encourage everyone to try their hand at composing. 

The “window of opportunity” to complete the application and submit your composition online will be from Monday, October 25, 2021 to Wednesday, January 5, 2022. All entries must be submitted by January 5, 2022. Program rules and procedures are available below. All PMEA members and/or their students are encouraged to submit compositions. Application Fee – $10
