Congratulations to our 2023 Aird prize winner, Koh Cheng Jin! Their piece, Flower Mantis, will be performed at Earplay's March concert in 2024. Stay tuned!
Earplay sponsors the annual Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition, open to composers of any nationality and any age. Earplay performs the prizewinning piece and presents a cash prize of $1,000 to the winning composer. The competition honors the late composer/conductor/Earplay board member Donald Aird, an ardent supporter of the creation and performance of new music.
