Often, songs of rebellion and vision are responses to wars, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to songs from the Civil War, World Wars I and II, to the Vietnam War, and after.
However, music genres may also reflect rebellion or a visionary spirit: Folk songs, Jazz, Swing, R & B, Rock ‘n Roll, Rock, Hip Hop, Alternative, etc. Performers, musicians, lyricists, and music composers, including film composers like John Williams or Philip Glass, may be rebels or visionaries.
Artists are asked to submit their interpretations of any music or musical artist, with work that reflects the meaning of this theme, in any artistic style, from traditional to contemporary, in its many forms.
Entry Deadline: June 25
