Houston modern music’s most important event of the season continues its international expansion. With entries from across the US and as far as Asia, this event has grown from one to now four categories that include: professional, university, high school and junior. The distinguished and award winning panel of judges has included Carlisle Floyd, Ted Hearne, William Bolcom, Christopher Theofanidis, Daron Hagen, Kwong Mee Choi, Mary Carol Warwick and others. As part of FMM’s Educational Outreach Program, judges provide all entries with valuable critique and professional opinion that participants otherwise would have not obtained. Among the event's highlights are the finalist’s concert, the award ceremony, and the audience choice award.
