The Chester County Concert Band has established a composition competition for music students at selected Philadelphia region universities. Fitting with our non-profit goals of music education and performance for the community, the objective of the competition is to encourage composition for large wind concert bands such as the CCCB.
The 2016-2017 winner of the composition competition is Mark Lortz, PhD student at Temple University, with his composition "A Hero's Journey". Congratulations! The CCCB will be performing this at our Spring Concert, May 7, 2017.
