It’s back-to-school time, and we’re reaching out to let you know that it’s also time to spread the word about NextNotes®High School Composition Awards. Students in grades 9-12 are invited to apply with a single composition in any genre or style by January 9, 2017.

Whether you write for voices, electronics or instruments, are a singer/songwriter or improviser, hip-hop artist or sound designer… if you create original, creative music and are in high school, we want you to apply! NextNotes applications are submitted electronically through an easy, free online process. Six composers will be chosen to receive a scholarship along with travel to Minneapolis-St. Paul for a two-day workshop with professional composer mentors and professional musicians in June 2017. The workshop concludes with an awards ceremony, culminating concert of the winning works, and celebration!
