Experience Opportunity

Composer Competition

Applications for the 2022 Composer Competition are now open!

The 2022 Competition marks the third instalment of this scheme run by ORA Singers, with its aim to nurture and develop a new generation of choral composers through educational mentoring and opportunities.

ORA Singers is on the hunt for passion and potential in young composers aged 18 or under from UK non-fee paying state-schools, who wish to further their compositional development.

10 Finalists will be selected to receive 10 hours of one-to-one tuition and support with industry-leading composers, who will guide them through the composition of a new choral work. Mid-way through the Competition, Finalists will attend a Workshop with ORA Singers who will work through their piece with a professional composer, and offer tips and guidance to help develop their new piece.

Finalists will then be invited to attend the Final of the Composer Competition, where each Finalist’s completed piece will be performed in concert by ORA Singers to a live audience and a panel of experts, who will decide on our Winners! Finalists will also receive a live recording of their work from the concert for posterity.

Deadline: 12pm, Monday 7th February 2022
