PMEA Composition Program

2020 PMEA Composition Program Information

 PMEA is pleased to once again sponsor a composition program for PMEA members and their students in conjunction with the 2020 PMEA Annual Conference, April 23-25 in the Poconos. The program is divided into five categories with the top compositions from each being recognized during the 2020 PMEA 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 21 to December 2, 2019. All entries must be submitted by December 2, 2019.  All PMEA members and/or their students are encouraged to submit compositions.
