Composers Competition

Since the spring of 2001, YNYC has commissioned more than thirty new works from rising stars in the choral world. We have given these works world premieres, and awarded more than $20,000 in prizes.

We are thrilled to announce that the three finalists for the 2018-2019 Competition for Young Composers are Lauren Bydalek, Sawyer Denton, and Scott Senko. We very much look forward to working with each of these artists over the coming months.
