Funkathon, held non-stop from 4:30 p.m. Friday, February 16 to 8:00 p.m. Saturday, February 17, is Macalester’s annual overnight musical composition contest. Composers, artists, performance artists, creators, and multi-media artists are invited to form teams of 3 - 6 participants to write and produce an original piece of music or multimedia presentation up to 4 minutes in length. Work will be recorded with a professional sound engineer for judging.

 

At the beginning of the competition, each team is paired with an alumni judge. A group of judges will be brought in from across the country specifically to mentor and evaluate Funkathon teams. Each team will deliver to the judging panel a unique and original musical composition. Students will be judged on musical form, style, orchestration, and performance. The three highest-scoring teams will be awarded with cash prizes!

 

Please join us for Funkathon final presentations in Mairs Concert Hall, Janet Wallace Fine Art Center on February 17, 4:30 PM!
