ClefWorks 2012 Competition Winner Announcement
ClefWorks is pleased to announce Iron Giant Percussion as the winner of its special Percussion Competition. Iron Giant was chosen by So Percussion after the group submitted a recording of their ensemble performing David Skidmore’s Ritual Music. This year’s Percussion Competition was made possible with grant funds from the Central Alabama Community Foundation.
The winning group receives a cash prize, the opportunity to work and rehearse with So Percussion and will perform on stage with the group acclaimed both as “brilliant” and “an experimental powerhouse” during the 2013 ClefWorks Festival in February.
The Percussion Competition provided aspiring percussionists from the Gulf Coast area with a unique opportunity to collaborate with an accomplished percussion ensemble, not to mention putting ClefWorks on the map in the percussion world. We hope you enjoy this year’s twist on our annual Competition.
ClefWorks® is a nonprofit chamber music organization that incorporates new and traditional music with other relevant art forms and a unique social twist. ClefWorks held its Premiere Season in Montgomery, Alabama, during the summer of 2007. Information about the festival, musicians, programs and previous Competitions may be found here.
