Red Note Music Festival Competition
The 2011 RED NOTE New Music Festival Composition Competition has concluded. Both the quantity and quality of the works submitted were truly overwhelming: we received 249 entries from 20 different countries, and from 36 different states and U.S. territories. A great many of these works were deserving of recognition, and the judges had a difficult task in determining a winner.
This year's winning work is "Garapan," by Peiying Yuan of Ithaca, New York. Ms. Yuan will receive the $500 prize, and a performance of her work during the RED NOTE New Music Festival.
"Remnants," by Joseph Dangerfield, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was named Runner-Up.
Honorable Mentions were awarded to:
"Towards the Flame," by Shawn Brogan Allison, of Chicago, IL
"Eco di un tempo perduto," by Massimo Lauricella, of Genoa, Italy
"Fairy Tale," by Moon Young Ha, of New York, NY
In addition to Illinois State University School of Music faculty, the judges included:
Kurt Rohde, University of California at Davis
Ken Ueno, University of California at Berkeley
Laura Schwendinger, University of Wisconsin at Madison
Carter Pann, University of Colorado at Boulder
