The Barlow Endowment for Music Composition awards commissions to composers for new works that have promise of outstanding artistic value. In awarding these commissions, the Board of Advisors encourages a close working relationship between the composer and the performer(s) of the premiere. The results will be announced via email and on our website and Facebook page before August 31. Payment of these awards will begin after January 1 of the following year.
All application materials are to be mailed (not emailed) to our office BEFORE THE CLOSE OF BUSINESS ON JUNE 1 annually. The Endowment does not receive mail on Saturday, Sunday, or national US holidays; please plan accordingly. The Endowment will not consider applications received after June 1.
