Denver calling on Colorado composers for theme song

Much like superheroes, cities need theme songs. Or at least Denver does.

The Mile High City will be spending $5,000 to commission a composer for its official “City and County Building Chime.”

Proposed signature tunes need to be uplifting, lively, positive, and celebratory — none of that “Phantom of the Opera” or “Bells of Rhymney” stuff — and they must also be limited to 10 notes (C, D, E, F, G, A, B, B flat, C, and D).

Entries are restricted to Colorado artists, and must be received by Friday, January 15.

You can find more rules — lots of them — here.
