The William Lincer Foundation Chamber Music Competition

The Board of Directors appreciates the many inquiries it receives about the composer competition but has decided to suspend the competition until further notice.

The prize-winning composition for the 2006 competition was String Quintet 2006 (2 violins, 2 violas, cello) by Robert Kritz of Chicago, Illinois. The 16-minute work is in two movements: "Loose Canon" and "Renewal."
