Classical Evolve: Composer Competition

As part of Maestro Stilian Kirov’s vision to encourage the development of new musical voices, Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra is excited to announce IPO Classical Evolve – our annual composition competition aimed at expanding the canon of classical music for current and future generations.

In an innovative and artistically fulfilling process, three finalists will be chosen to have their original score workshopped and performed LIVE to IPO audiences on Thursday, September 22, 2022. The winning composer will be named IPO “Composer-in-Residence” and have the opportunity to compose three works during the 2023-24 Season.
