Free competition (£500 first prize)

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everybody,

Today is the first day of submissions for the Walter Hussey Composition Competition (with entries closing on June 30th).

The competition is free to enter, and this year is only open to composers aged 16-24 on June 30th 2020. There are two cash prizes available for the winning entrants, and the work will be premiered by Reading Phoenix Choir in March 2021.

For full details, visit www.walterhussey.com but in brief:

- The theme is New Horizons

- SATB to SSAATTBB plus solo lines if you want

- Ideally unaccompanied

- Ideally <3 minutes (the choir sing everything from memory)

- Entry is by submitting a pdf and accompanying audio file (anything from rubbish midi to a multitrack MP3 will do) to info@walterhussey.com

- Maximum two entries per person

Hopefully lots of you will decide to enter!
