Since the 2004-2005 season, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has offered an annual reading of works by
young composers from area universities as part of its Composer of the Year program. Beginning last season,
the PSO’s annual reading program expanded its call for submissions to residents of Pennsylvania*. Up to four
works will be selected for the reading session, where at least one of the spots will be reserved for a student
from the universities that have traditionally participated in the program.
Submissions will be evaluated by Adviser David Stock, and read by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
conducted by Leonard Slatkin. The event is free and open to the general public. Following the session,
composers will receive feedback from a panel including David Stock, Leonard Slatkin, and PSO musicians.
 Applicants must be residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania at the time of submission.
 Applicants must be composers in the early stages of their professional careers.
 Previous participants may not reapply.
 Only one work per composer will be considered.
 Submitted works may not have received a performance or a reading by a professional orchestra.
