amw composition contest

The Amsterdam Marimba Weekend and Orgelpark-Amsterdam have the pleasure to announce a new composition contest, encouraging composers of all nationalities and ages to submit new works. In this way we would like to extend the repertoire for that unique combination and give the opportunity for both instrumentalists and audience to explore a whole new field of sound and music forms.

Application for 2020 is closed.

For its First edition new compositions were sent from the Netherlands, Croatia, United States, Bulgaria, Serbia, Germany and Spain. The jury had selected three works that will go to the finals and will be performed in a concert at the Orgelpark on 13th of March 2020. After that the AMW AWARD winner and the Audience Prize will be announced.
