About Composium 

The fourth Singapore International Composition Competition for Chinese chamber music – Composium 2021 is a triennial composition festival organised by Ding Yi Music Company since 2012. The festival consists of a composition competition, a series of symposiums/ workshops and a prize presentation concert. To date, we have received hundreds of composition submissions from both local and international composers. A panel of internationally-acclaimed composers will also be invited to serve as adjudicators and speakers at this event.

Composium aims to: 

1.  Stimulate international awareness towards Chinese chamber ensembles, among composers of all nationalities             and ages.

2.  Take the lead in establishing a repertoire of Chinese chamber works

3.   Provide a platform for local young composers and composing students in writing Chinese chamber music
