The Graham Sommer Competition for Young Composers will invite audience members into the world of composition with the premiere of new works for piano trio (violin, cello, and piano). The winners of all prizes, including the audience prize, will be announced following the performance and jury deliberations.
In the spirit of Graham Sommer’s love for sharing music, the competition will take place during Quebec’s 25th edition of the Journées de la Culture in September 2021; this annual event promotes greater access to arts and culture for everyone, giving participants a peek into the creative process with free activities all over the province.
