In partnership with the ORA Singers Composer Competition

Composer Competition

Project partners for Composer Create

In September 2018, ORA Singers announced its first ever Composer Competition in two categories; Open and Youth. The Open Competition was aimed at composers of all ages, and the Youth Competition was aimed at potential composers from non-fee paying schools who would also receive compositional mentoring towards writing a new choral work.

As an extension to our mentoring programme and with the help of our project supporters, Signatur, we launched this website, Composer Create, in order to provide many more individuals with access to compositional support and resources.

The Composer Competition Final Concert took place on Saturday 27th July, 7:00 at King’s College Chapel.
