2014 Sayat Nova International Composition Competition
This year, winners will receive three cash prizes, 2500€, 1500€ and 1000€ to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively. In addition, there are two special prizes awarded: the special Carnegie Hall Award, in which the selected piece will be premiered at a concert AGBU organizes every December at Weill Recital Hall. The second is the Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra (APO), which is given to the first prize winner who will be commissioned to write a ten minute piece to be premiered by the APO during their 2016/17 season.
The Sayat Nova International Composition Competition was created in 2006 in AGBU France, and is held every two years. This year we are organizing the competition from our offices in New York City, and are revitalizing it with a brand new website and collaboration with Vox Novus for online submissions.
