Young Composers Competition 2019

Young Composers Competition 2019

The EPO invited submissions for its fifth Young Composers Competition in 2019. Original works scored for orchestra were judged by a three member panel.

Three winners received cash prices and the Grand Prize composition “Unanswered Letters” was to be performed by the EPO at our 2020 March concert.

Unfortunately, as COVID-19 cancelled that concert, we look forward to programming this piece at a later date.


Grand Prize: Matthew Emery “Unanswered Letters”
Runner up: Curtis Wright “Guardians of the Night”
Promising High School Composer: Achilles Jiang “Sunrise”
