The VBC is pleased to announce the inaugural year of a new Choral Composition Competition. The competition was established by a generous private donor to encourage the creation of new choral music by Canadian composers and to honour the organization’s history of engaging local and national composers.
The competition is open to unpublished and unperformed works written by composers who are a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or landed immigrant. If a citizen, you are not required to be currently residing in Canada. There is no age restriction.
The winner of the competition will receive:
- A cash prize of $2000 issued after the premiere performance.
- A premiere of the work presented at Christmas with the Bach Choir on December 2nd, 2018.
- Access to an archival recording of the premiere.
