There's Still Time to Enter the International Society of Bassists Composition Competition
Composers have until June 1 to submit their work for consideration in the 2004 International Society of Bassists composition competition. There are three divisions: Solo (for double bass, or double bass and piano); Chamber (for an ensemble of two to five players, including bass and a variety of woodwind, brass, percussion, or stringed instruments); and Media (in which double bass is paired with such electronic media accompaniment as tape, CD, live electronics, interactive computer, video, film visuals, and so on). Grand prize for each division is $1,000. World premieres of the works will be held at the 2005 ISB Convention, from June 6 to 11, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.
