Alice Samter Chamber Music Competition

Likewise, funding is provided for the prize money of the Alice Samter Chamber Music Competition. The Berlin University of the Arts strives to cultivate the work of Alice Samter. A concert of works by the composer is held at least every two years. The inclusion of one of her works in the chamber music competition also takes this idea into account. Alice Samter's oeuvre includes compositions for many different instrumentations with piano, strings, winds and percussion.

Eligible are ensembles of all genres, three to nine persons in size, at least two-thirds of which consist of students of the Faculty of Music at the UdK Berlin. All prize-winners are obliged to participate in the prize-winners' concert.
