Gotham Chamber Opera And The Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation Announce The Creation Of The Catherine Doctorow Prize For Music

Bookmark and Share

Gotham Chamber Opera and the Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation announce the inaugural cycle of the Catherine Doctorow Prize for Music, a competitive prize awarded to a composer to support the creation of a new work for voice and chamber ensemble. For more information and to apply for this commissioning award, visit www.gothamchamberopera.org/registration. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2014.

The Catherine Doctorow Prize for Music will be a bi-annual award of $15,000 to a composer for the creation of a new work for voice and chamber ensemble of between 3 and 10 acoustic instruments (some guidelines will apply) and between 15 and 30 minutes in length. Given the inherent challenges of writing idiomatically for the human voice, a goal of the competition is to successfully enlarge the repertoire of works for voice and instruments. The prizewinner's completed work will be premiered under the aegis of Gotham Chamber Opera.

The application is open to composers, emerging and established, over 21 years of age and residing in the United States. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2014. During the first phase, applications will be evaluated according to their adherence to the guidelines. In the second phase, the review committee will hear all approved submissions and select finalists to present to the jury. During the third phase, the jury will evaluate the finalists' selections and award a prize to one composer.

After the award winner is announced, on August 1, 2014, the composer will have nine months to complete the new work. The premiere will be performed by a singer and instrumentalists associated with Gotham Chamber Opera within a year of the work's completion. Gotham Chamber Opera Artistic Director Neal Goren will be available to consult with the composer on questions pertaining to vocal writing during the process of composition. Limited assistance will be available to secure rights for published texts, if needed. A travel allowance will be provided for composers residing outside New York City to help with costs of attending the rehearsals and premiere of the award-winning work.

Catherine Doctorow was a serious and prolific painter whose work, in a contemporary idiom, flourished in the 1950s and '60s. The Catherine Doctorow Prize for Music is the third of three major recurring prizes to be established by her family and the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation to honor and perpetuate Doctorow's love of innovative literary fiction, the visual arts, and music.
