The Azrieli Foundation: Call for Submissions for Canada’s Largest Prize for Classical Music Composition
The Azrieli Foundation of Montreal take a strategic interest in supporting the development of music as a vital human endeavour that expresses creativity, intelligent thought and intercultural understanding as motivating forces to shape a better world. In particular, the Foundation encourages the creation and performance of Jewish Music and the professional development of emerging professional artists by investing in organizations and initiatives such as the Azrieli Music Prizes (AMP) established in 2014, which offer opportunities for the creation, performance and celebration of high quality new Jewish Music.
The Azrieli Prize of $50,000 CAD is awarded biennially through a competitive process to a composer who has written the best new major work of Jewish Music. Open to the international music community, individual works can be nominated by individuals and institutions from all nationalities, faiths, backgrounds and affiliations, and submitted to the AMP Jury through the open call for scores. The winning work will be performed by a major Canadian orchestra as part of the AMP Gala Concert, scheduled for the fall of 2018, and subsequently audio recorded to commercial quality.
Submission deadline: Sunday, November 5, 2017
