Winners of the 11th Busan Composition Competition
1st Place: Tyler Stampe (USA): "Asperges me, Domine"
2nd Place: Mirae Hwang (KOREA): "Psalm 118"
3rd Place: Andres Gallo (Colombia): "Sol de Invierno"
Applications for the Competition came from all over the world, including Canada, China, Colombia, Cyprus, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, U.K as well as the United States. We highly appreciate their brilliant works.
However, some of them were too experimental to be played by voices. As the Busan Composition Competition much prefers artistically higher quality songs, so the judgement focused on it. The 1st place winner of 2015, 'Asperges Me' shows fine effects of choral sound, even though it has a wide voice range.
All winners of the 1,2,3 places are invited to join the 2015 Busan Choral Festival & Competition and will receive their Diplomas during an Award Ceremony on Saturday, October 17, 2015. The Prize Money will be sent to their bank account within 2 weeks after finishing the BCFC.
