Submission Deadline: 15 Jul 2021 (Th)
Open to all nationalities, no age restriction.
Presented by the Hong Kong Harmonica Association, the 1st Hong Kong International Composition Competition for Chromatic Harmonica 2021 is a multi-faceted musical event with the vision of enriching local and global harmonica culture. Epitomising the Association’s unwavering rationale, not only will the Competition connect local music ecologies with the international, it will also line up professional musicians with the members of the public in the exploration of possibilities in this miniature instrument.
Whilst shortlisted works in the Competition will receive widespread coverage, local musicians and overseas virtuosos are synergised to offer collaborative insights in the performance of the works. Whilst the Competition inspires the musicianship of professional artists, the members of the public will obtain a crucial understanding on the instrument. Fuelled with the multicultural exchanges between these parties, the Competition is going to ignite enormous possibilities through compositions.
There are two categories:
Category A: Solo harmonica and piano accompaniment (the duration of the entries should be between 6-8 minutes);
Category B: Solo harmonica and chamber orchestra (the duration of the entries should be between 8-10 minutes).
