9th Annual Commissioning Competition

The Boston New Music Initiative is very excited to announce the winner of our 9th Annual Commissioning Competition! Our judging panel was extremely impressed with the quality of the works submitted. Ania Vu's piece "Tik-tak" was selected by an outside panel of industry professionals from an anonymous pool of almost 100 very wonderful compositions. Vu will be writing a new work for BNMI to obe premiered in 2022. Polish of Vietnamese descent composer and pianist, Ania Vu (née Vũ Đặng Minh Anh) is pursuing a Ph.D. as a Benjamin Franklin Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. Her music explores the interplay between linguistical sound properties and meanings, musical energy related to form, and varied notions of time. Her current mentors are Marcos Balter, James Primosch, and Anna Weesner. In 2017, she received her BM in composition and theory from the Eastman School of Music. BNMI would also like to recognize Clay McMillan, whose work "Siste Viator" received an honorable mention.
