Young Composers Competition

We are looking for young Surrey people to compose a work for us to sing in 2021.

We’re looking for a secular or sacred work suitable for performance by a mixed voice amateur choir, either with keyboard accompaniment (organ or piano) or unaccompanied.  The piece should last no less than 3 and no more than 6 minutes. The text must be in English or Latin.
The Competition is open to young people – under the age of 25 on 27 November 2020 – who live in the county of Surrey or who are in full or part-time education in the county.
The closing date is 27 November 2020.  Entries will be judged by a panel of professional musicians.
If you wish to enter, please complete and return the Application Form.


The first prize will be £1,000.  If the winner is aged 19 or over on 27 November 2020, a further prize of £500 may be awarded for the best work by an entrant aged 18 or under on that date.
