The Andrew Svoboda Prize for Orchestral Composition was created in memory of Andrew Svoboda, BMus’00, MMus’04, a promising composer who passed away suddenly in 2004. The prize seeks to recognize excellence in orchestral composition, encourage the creation of new Canadian orchestral works and provide enriched pedagogical opportunities for student composers and performers through an annual commissioning prize of $5,000 for an orchestral piece to be premiered by the McGill Symphony Orchestra.
The performance on November 24 will be webcast on the Schulich School of Music YouTube channel.
