A NOTE ABOUT VIPA COMPOSITION 2020

Due to some changes to our usual logistics, we at VIPA Festival have decided to postpone our Composition Program until the summer of 2021.

Please know that we will open our applications again during the Fall of 2020, and we are surely looking forward to getting to hear exciting Music and to get to know the amazing composers that we’re always lucky to host at our Festival.

Many thanks to those who have reached out to us asking about the Festival, and we definitely look forward to connecting with you next Fall!

Yours,

The Staff at VIPA Festival
