Saturday 3rd July 2021 at St Nicholas Church, Chiswick – Choral Composition Competition and other works
** This concert has been postponed because of uncertainties about how the Coronavirus restrictions are affecting choirs. It should take place later in the year, possibly without an audience or in the form of a virtual recording **
Chiswick Choir invited composers to compete for our Robin Johnson Competition Prize by writing new and original compositions for us. A shortlist of works has now been drawn up to be performed as part of this concert. We are delighted that Cecilia McDowall and Stephen Jackson have agreed to adjudicate the competition on the night.
Many thanks to the 150 or so composers who sent in entries. It was a difficult and challenging task for our Musical Director and her team to reduce these to a shortlist of five pieces that the Choir is preparing to perform at this concert.
