Original Composition Submission

We are calling for original choral compositions or arrangements in all musical styles, written for SATB or Men's Choir. We will choose one winner from each voicing category.

Both winners will receive a $250 cash prize, in addition to the option of having their piece published by Holy Sheet Music (which allows composers to retain all rights).

Composers may submit up to 5 original works or arrangements, with a duration of 2–5 minutes each. They may be either unaccompanied or accompanied by piano and/or one additional instrument.

If selected, composers must agree that the premiere performance of the piece will take place during the ACDA-Utah conference on October 26–27, 2018, and they must also allow the conductor of the premiering choir flexibility to make any needed minor alterations (voice leading, etc.), to accommodate their particular ensemble.

While there is no age requirement to submit, composers must currently reside in Utah.  

Submissions will close on Friday, May 18, 2018
