Rapido! Composition Contest National Finals Concert
This concert concludes the sixth cycle of our Rapido! 14 Day Composition Contest with the final round at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Hill Auditorium. This concert will be livestreamed in addition to accommodating a very limited live audience. Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Music Director Robert Spano will lead an esteemed judging panel as we select a grand prize-winning composer from our five talented finalists. Musicians Alcides Rodriguez, Justin Bruns, Catherine Lynn and Brad Ritchie will be premiering all five works.
Composers from across the country were tasked - in just 14 days - to to encapsulate the extraordinary time many of us are grappling with and the major changes in both personal and professional lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The compositions expressed the impact this had has on the composer and/or reflect the different range of human emotions that have been experienced worldwide. The five finalists were chosen through a blind judging process.
This is a must-see event!
