Chris Maunu wrote to say: “I am in disbelief and humbled that “While the Air is Ours” has been named a Semi-Finalist in the Composer Division of the American Prize! I cannot begin to describe my gratitude for all of the support so many have expressed as I’ve entered this new venture – especially from composers I respect so dearly. Thank you ALL so much for the love and for taking a chance on my music!”

The American Prize is honored to announce an extensive list of 2021 SEMI-FINALIST composers of choral music in both professional and student divisions. Congratulations!

As the contests unfold, finalists, runners-up and winners will be selected from this list. To know the exact date when finalists will be announced, please “like” our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter #AmericanPrize, where that information will be published first.
