1st International Composition Competition for Orchestra and Choir

05 Jan - 31 May, 2019

El Cor Canta is a newly created chorus currently formed by 140 singers of diverse musical levels. It grew out of the project Canta amb l’OBC, a project that is part of a joint initiative of various European orchestras, that aims to develop new audiences and that has the support and funding of the European Union through its European Orchestra Laboratory program.

The competition seeks to find new choral-symphonic compositions based on a specific text. In this edition, the composition should be based on the poetic work of a Catalan author, free of copyright. The specifications of the contest are explained extensively in the rules which are attached.

There are two categories, based on the composer's age:

Professional category: born before 1 January 1984; 3,000€ prize

Students or young composers category: born after 31 December 1983; 2,000€ prize

The deadline for the delivery of the compositions will be May 31, 2019.
Closing date: 31 May 2019
