The second finalists’ concert Alexander Award SA Composers’ Competition will take place on Saturday, March 9, at 19:00 at the Hugo Lambrechts Auditorium in Parow.
Jeremy Silver will be on the podium. The winning composition will be announced that night at the concert, which will also be live streamed.
This competition, part of the Alexander International Music Awards (AIMA), will feature several of the 30 compositions which are being currently short-listed to be performed in the final round, where the main prize will be R50 000, sponsored by Alexander Valentin, and a new commission for R15 000, while the CPO is offering the position of composer-in-residence for one year as an opportunity to have at least one more piece performed.
An exchange with the Junge Norddeutsche Philharmonie (jnp) in Germany will also enable the winning piece to be performed internationally at a concert in Germany, while the winner of a competition organized by the jnp will have his or her work performed in Cape Town by the CPO.
