2nd Zodiac International Music Competition

 2nd Zodiac International Music Competition
Summary:Trio competition
Deadline: 15 March 2020
Date Posted: 27 November 2019
Details: The 2nd Zodiac International Music Competition aims to discover exceptional musical talent, both in performance and composition, from across the globe, and bring it to the stage of the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival in the beautiful South of France.

The winning composer will be offered a commission to write for the internationally-recognized Zodiac Trio (founders of the Festival), or its individual members, as well as a cash prize. The work will be performed in New York at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music, as well as at the Zodiac Music Academy & Festival in the South of France in July.

The lack of need to travel makes this opportunity available to artists who might not otherwise have the ability to compete, and opens it to a much wider array of musicians across the globe.
