Contests & Competitions

The Lake George Music Festival is a strong supporter of contemporary classical music, and annually hosts an international competition to promote its continued development. Their mission is to find and recruit the next generation of leading composers and promote their work to the world at large. They will pair the most promising works with their roster of exceptional performers, fostering long-lasting relationships between artists of the highest caliber. By promoting the movement that contemporary music is alive, inspirational, and relevant to every community, they are doing their part to connect Lake George with the evolution of this tradition.

The entry fee for the competition is $10.

Two winning composers will receive $500, a live performance of their work at the Lake George Music Festival, and will be invited to Lake George as “Composers in Residence” in 2018 to work with the musicians performing their piece. Lodging and some meals will be provided free of charge, and attendance at the festival is encouraged but not required.
