The ASU Carillon Society has opened its third annual Carillon Composition Competition and invites ASU students to submit new works for ASU's Symphonic Carillon.
The competition is named in honor of Scottsdale composer Robert X. La Pat, who wrote the first works for the carillon after it was restored to use in 2005.
Entries are due March 15. The prize is a $250 cash award, underwritten by Kenneth and Laurie Polasko of Scottsdale, and the debut performance of the award-winning work at a carillon concert.
For a list of official rules, facts about the carillon, and information about how to enter the contest, contact Carl Cross, co-chair of the ASU Carillon Society, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (480) 675-7727. Or, contact Jody Rockmaker, associate professor of composition in the ASU School of Music, (480) 965-2534 or email@example.com.
Robert X. La Pat received his bachelor of music degree in composition from the New England Conservatory of Music and his master of music degree in composition from Boston University. He was a winner in the Composer's Guild Composition Competition in 2012. In 2013 he produced five albums for the Extended Horizons label of midi realizations of selected compositions.
