"Aliénor promotes new music for the harpsichord through concerts, commissions and a competition.
The "Aliénor Harpsichord Composition Competition" was started in 1980 under the aegis of the Southeastern Historical Keyboard Society (SEHKS). Aliénor is now an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible. Aliénor runs the quadrennial harpsichord composition competition, publishes winning compositions, and commission new works for the harpsichord. There have been six competitions thus far, with over 400 new scores generated from composers around the world. The 2004 competition had 85 entries, with compositions coming from Australia, Japan, New Zealand, numerous European countries, and 15 states in America. "
