Hey, Mozart! NM Composer Project enters third year Hey, Mozart! New Mexico 's Child Composer Project has entered its third year and we are looking for new compositions. Attached is a description of the project and pplication forms in both English and Spanish. We hope you will want to share your music with us again and pass this information on to your friends Complete information and forms are on our website http://www.heymozartnm.org
. The deadline for submitting melodies is Februrary 29, 2008.
The 2007 project produced 16 interesting compositions by young composers and an additional 11 children who received honorable mention. The concert on Sept. 7, 2007 was soldout and the young composers and their ccompanists were thrilled to share the stage with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra at the beautiful National Hispanic Cultural Center 's Journal Theatre.
This is not a one-shot deal, however. Six students performed again in school concerts later in September, others have performed at Music in Corrales and for various other organizations. On January 22, four of the composers will perform at the Round House in Santa Fe to calm the harried legislators. In April 2008, the Las Cruces composers will be featured in school and a regular concert with the outstanding Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra. The big concert with the NMSO for 2008 will take place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center 's beautiful Journal Theatre on Friday, September 12, 2008 .
If you have already passed the Hey, Mozart! age limit, consider the Santa Fe New Music Composition for composers 18 and under. Their website is http://education.sfnm.org/composer.html
