Devin Farney – “Fire and Ice” for Soprano, Bassoon and Piano
Greg Steinke – “Suspended” for Bassoon, Violins I and II, Viola, and Cello

Thank you to all the composers who shared their talents with the BCMCC.

There were many exciting new works submitted.  As a result, honorable mention has been extended to:

Clint Dawson – “Burgundy in Blue” for Bassoon, Violin, Viola, Double Bass and Piano
Stephen Yip – “Beauty of the Dark Shadows” for Oboe, Bass clarinet, Bassoon, and Piano

The BCMCC would not be possible without the support of the bassoon and composing communities.  Thank you to our outstanding panel of judges: Carolyn Beck, Michael Burns, Jefferson Campbell, Cynthia Cioffari, Monica Ellis, Judith Farmer, Lynn Hileman, Jeffrey McCray, Kathleen McLean, and Maya Stone.

Stay tuned for information about the upcoming CD on MSR Classics and World Premiere Concert at the Meg Quigley Symposium in January 2014.

Imagine Music to publish 2012 works

The BCMCC has partnered with Imagine Music to publish the winning works for the 2012 BCMCC.  Imagine Music has a wonderful catalog of bassoon music and we are honored to contribute with our 2012 winning works.  Winning composers will work with Imagine Music to establish a publishing deal; the BCMCC serves as an introduction but doesn’t take royalties from winning composers, that’s all yours!

We want to thank Imagine Music for being part of the 2012 BCMCC!

A 501(c)(3) National Arts Organization

It is with great excitement that we announce the BCMCC is now a 501(c)(3) public charity in the eyes of the IRS.  This status will allow us greater fundraising avenues, grant possibilities, and individual support.  We are happy to establish the BCMCC as a National Arts Organization and hope to provide opportunities for composers and musicians for many years to come.
