The Chester County Concert Band's composition competition is aimed at encouraging young musicians in our area to consider creating new, quality music for large concert bands/ensembles. Current college and university music students in the Delaware Valley/Greater Philadelphia region are eligible to apply. As a non-profit music-performing organization centered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, we are interested in offering students an avenue for them to create, and have performed, music for large ensembles.
