Due April 1st, 2018 - Symphoria, the professional orchestra serving Central New York, is hosting a competition to select a film/video for screening at a concert on April 20, 2018.

The winning film/video will be paired in concert with Jennifer Higdon’s chamber composition, Sky Rising. They are seeking submissions inspired by this music that evokes the theme of liberty. All visual forms, including animation, are welcome. Please, no soundtrack, as the film will be screened with live music. If dialogue is part of your film, please eliminate ALL talking/sound and include subtitles.

Your film will be screened with a live musical performance of this piece. The piece, "Jennifer Higdon's Sky Quartet No. 1, Mvt. 1 'Sky Rising'", can be found on the main contest page. It's recommended that ALL filmmakers to listen to this piece of music first.

From the Composer:
When I began composing "Sky Quartet", I envisioned the wonder and immensity of the Western sky. This is especially appropriate since the Da Vinci Quartet resides in Colorado. Every time I've been west of the Mississippi, I've always marveled at that exquisite canvas of blue and clouds. This work paints musical portraits of the sky in various stages: start of a day, the rapture of its "blueness", a storm-wrenched fury, and its vast immensity.
This work was commissioned by Frances Hettinger for the DaVinci Quartet. Originally composed in 1997, it was revised in 2000.

Entries should be 5-minutes in length.
