The City Council announces the III Composition Contest for Symphonic Band ‘Estepona, Garden of the Costa del Sol’, worth 10,000 euros

The competition, open to musicians of any nationality of legal age, aims to create symphonic works about the city.

The deadline for the admission of projects will be September 4 and the deadline for the presentation of the finished work will be January 15 next year.

The Estepona City Council has opened the call for the III Composition Contest for Symphonic Band ‘Estepona, Garden of the Costa del Sol’, which will award 10,000 euros to the composer of the best symphonic work inspired by the city.

The aim of the contest is to reward the best musical project, taking into account other criteria such as the composer’s career, his musical catalog or experience.

The contest is open to all composers of legal age, of any nationality, except those who have won in the two previous editions. The projects must belong to the symphonic genre, and the works must be written and instrumented for a regular music band formation, with a minimum duration of 12 minutes and a maximum of 20 minutes.

According to the rules, the contest will be divided into three phases: in the first phase, participants may send their projects with the requested documentation, with a deadline of September 4.

In the second phase, a jury composed of three personalities, of proven prestige in the world of composition and / or musical direction, will choose and award the participant with the best curriculum and catalog, in whose project the values of the contest are present, with inspiration from the city of Estepona, its people and its customs.

In the third phase, the winning author must send to the email concursocomposicionbanda@estepona.es his composition correctly presented, finished, written and laid out, both the conductor’s score and the corresponding parts of each musician, in PDF format, before 14:00 hours on January 15, 2024.

Once the work has been reviewed by the specialized commission, the organization, in agreement with the winner of the competition, will set a date for the premiere of the work and the public presentation of the prize. The winner will not be allowed to participate in the next five editions of the contest.

All the information and the bases are available on the bulletin board of the electronic headquarters of the City Council of Estepona, https://estepona.sedelectronica.es/board/.

The Consistory convened the first edition of this contest to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the founding of the Municipal Band (1940-2020). After the success achieved in terms of number of participants and quality of the compositions, the City Council has opted to maintain this contest to continue expanding the cultural offerings of the city.

The winning works of the two previous contests, ‘Estepona, Jardín del Mediterráneo (Astabuna)’, by the composer Álvaro López Cámara from Jaén, and ‘Estepona, el Jardín del Mundo’, by the Valencian composer Fernando Ferrer Martínez, artistically known as Ferrer Ferrán, are already part of the repertoire of the Municipal Band of Estepona.
