The deadline for submissions to the fifth annual Youth Inspiring Youth composition competition is April 9, 2012. WomenSing will award $1,000 each, for commissions to two California residents. Our Teaching Artist, Libby Larsen will be joined by Advising Composer Cristian Grases, as one-on-one mentors to the young composers. We collaborate with River of Words, part of the Center For Environmental Literacy at St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California, that provides an awe-inspiring body of poetry by youth.
Check out this video to see interviews with Martín Benvenuto of WomenSing, mentor Libby Larsen, and 2010 composers Elizabeth Lim and Joshua Fishbein. The video also shows clips from the 2010 workshop with Libby Larsen, the composers, and WomenSing, giving you an interesting look at the collaborative process.
