amw composition contest

The Amsterdam Marimba Weekend and Orgelpark-Amsterdam have the pleasure to announce the second edition of a 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.

For its First edition new compositions were sent from the Netherlands, Croatia, United States, Bulgaria, Serbia, Germany and Spain. Due to the pandemic outbreak in 2020 the official awarding of the wining piece will be announced on March the 20th at the Orgelpark along side with the new winner of the Fifth edition.
