Saturday 18th September 2021 – rescheduled Choral Composition Competition and other works
** This concert should take place in the normal way unless Coronavirus restrictions are reintroduced. **
Chiswick Choir’s 2021 Choral Composition Competition is funded by a legacy from Robin Johnson, who was a long standing member of the Choir. Throughout his life, Robin had connections with the sea, sailing and the river Thames, so the chosen theme for the competition pieces is ‘On the Water’.
The brief was for new and original choral pieces lasting between four and five minutes for mixed choir accompanied by piano or organ. Composers could choose their own text, which may be sacred or secular.
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 now preparing to perform at this concert.
We are delighted that Cecilia McDowall and Stephen Jackson have agreed to adjudicate the competition on the night.
