Composer’s Program

Melodia performs classical and contemporary works, and incorporates new works by living composers in our programs.

Melodia commissions women composers through our Women Composers Commission Competition and seeks out new works by all composers through our General Score Submission program.

Prior Commissioned Composers

Women Composer’s Commissioning Competition

Melodia is delighted to announce the winners of the 2022 composer’s commissioning competition. Two composers were selected to received commissions to create new works for Melodia during the 20th Anniversary Season. Emily C. Mason and Dr. Zanaida Noelle Stewart Robles will compose works for the fall 2023 and spring 2024 seasons. We look forward to working with these remarkable composers during the next two seasons and to presenting the premiere performances.

Visit us again for details of the next competition.
