Pan Harmonia announces 2018 MUSIC & POETRY FUSION COMPETITION for NC Women Writers
In celebration of its 20th season (2019-2020), Pan Harmonia, Asheville chamber music collective, has commissioned composer Dosia McKay to create an innovative work for voice, flute, bassoon and guitar for the chamber music repertoire and for the citizens of North Carolina. This endeavor is funded by a North Carolina Arts Council Program Support grant and private donors.
Submissions accepted: September 15 – November 15, 2018
Postmark deadline: November 15, 2018
