All compositions for performance consideration in the Darien Public Schools' Music Department's 14th annual Darien Young Composers Concert are due March 7.

The special concert program will take place Monday, April 7, at Darien High School.

The programs will feature the original music of student composers in the Darien Public Schools from the elementary, middle school and high school levels.

Submissions must be recorded on a CD or DVD and submitted along with the application form to one of the school music teachers. Students whose compositions are chosen to be included on the concert performance will be notified by March 17. The student composers selected to perform will also have the opportunity to have their compositions reviewed by a professional guest composer, who will meet with the students to discuss the creative process.

During the course of each school year, the music teachers engage their students in composition lessons and activities as part of their curriculum and encourage participation in this opportunity.

Guidelines, application forms and other information are available from all school music teachers in the Darien Public Schools, or by calling 203-655-3981, ext 2250.
