2020 C-G Competition

Composition & Guitar Competition

Registration Deadline: Saturday, July 4, 2020

The C-G Competition is about collaboration between composers and guitarists (C-G).  Prizewinners will be decided upon by the overall creativity of their project, quality of the score, and quality of the recording.  Teams may win the prize or individuals may be named. 

Composition students who participate in the Twisted Spruce curriculum will have until Sept 15, 2020 to complete the work they began during the festival.  All new music scores must be started by composers registered for the 2020 Online Symposium. 


Compositions and performances by first and second prize finalists will be invited to open the August 2021 Festival in Colorado Springs, CO.   First, second, and thrid prize winners will be named.  The guitarist who wins first prize will win a handmade concert guitar by Wilson Burnham.
