We are thrilled to announce that the beginning of our 2021-2022 concert season will begin in August, a full two months sooner than we normally open our concert seasons. We begin with a pair of LIVE concerts of new organ music featuring organist Claudia Dumschat on her home organ at the "Little Church Around the Corner,” Church of the Transfiguration on 29th Street in NYC. The first concert will be held on Wednesday, August 11, and the second on Thursday, September 9, both at 6:00 PM. Advance tickets are available HERE for both events. Save the dates and plan to join us for some LIVE music!


The New York Composers Circle is extremely proud of the accomplishments of our long-time member and current honorary member, Tania León. She has been bleesed with a long and distiguished career, and now to be awarded the crowning achievement in music, the Pulitzer Prize, for her orchestral piece Stride, is yet another in a long stream of deserved accomplishments and recognitions for her incredible body of work. Following is an article published by NPR on June 11 celebrating Tania’s accomplishments in music. Congratualtions, Tania!

Each year, the New York Composers Circle sponsors the John Eaton Memorial Competition. In 2015, the name was changed to honor our late Honorary Member John Eaton. The competition is open to composers of all ages who live in the New York metropolitan area (New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut), with the exception of current NYCC members and prior NYCC contest winners. The winning composition is performed at one of the NYCC’s concerts during the following season, and the winner also receives one year’s free membership in the Composers Circle.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the New York Composers Circle is temporarily suspending the competition until such a time that we may safely resume the process of presenting public concerts. Winners of the previous two year’s competition, Ecstacy for clarinet, violin, cello, piano by Cheng Jin Koh, and Picking Up Where I Left Off for violin and piano by composer Jeffrey Niederhoffer will be performed on a concert in the coming season.

To see a list of past winners of the competition, please click HERE. Pictured at left is Honorary Composer Member John Eaton, for whom the annual competition is named.
