Composers’ Competition

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS.

The Halifax Camerata Singers, under the artistic direction of Jeff Joudrey, is committed to commissioning, performing and recording music of Canadian composers. The New Song Competition provides an opportunity for emerging composers to contribute to the rich body of Canadian choral music and to have a new work performed by one of Canada’s leading chamber choirs.

This competition is open to Canadian citizens and permanent residents currently living in Canada, and who identify themselves as “emerging composers”. Current members of the Halifax Camerata Singers choir or Board are not eligible. Entries must be post-marked no later than May 31, 2013, and will be judged by a blind jury of musicians selected by the Halifax Camerata Singers. The winner will be announced in June 15, 2013, and the winning composition will be premiered at a concert in Halifax in the winter of 2014. The successful composer will also receive $1000 once the commissioned
work is completed, and will retain copyright for the commissioned work.
