Composition Competition

2017 Composition Competition Results

Seven compositions for pipe organ were submitted to the 2017 Composition Competition sponsored by the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. The Competition solicited a previously-unpublished work for solo pipe organ loosely based upon any Baroque form. For example: Gigue, Sarabande, Gavotte, Minuet, Bourrée, and could be a modern or traditional interpretation of the dance form.

In the unanimous opinion of the judges, no piece met the criteria specified above, and thus no prize will be awarded this year.

Requirements for the 2018 Twin Cities American Guild of Organists Composition Competition will be announced this summer at TCAGO.org, here on this page.
