With nearly 80 submissions from around the world, the 5th Annual Robert Avalon International Competition for Composers finalists' concert is the culminating event of our season. This year's judges include the Texas-born Rome Prize winner and internationally respected composer, Christopher Theofanidis; and Pulitzer Prize, National Medal of Arts, and two time Grammy Awards winner, William Bolcom. Every year this Competition reveals exciting new, highly original music by both young and more established composers, and this year we expect even more!
