Composers' Competition 2020

As a choir we are eager to return to the rehearsal room. In an attempt to support the Welsh creative industry during this period, Côr CF1 has decided to set a challenge for Welsh composers to compose a new choral piece to be performed in 2021.

The choir is keen to encourage any Welsh composer to write a piece that would be suitable to perform in a concert hall and in a competition.

We are delighted that a friend of the choir and composer, Professor Paul Mealor, will join the choir's musical team, Eilir Owen Griffiths, Richard Vaughan and Rhiannon Pritchard, to adjudicate the competition.

The winner of the competition will receive a prize of £600 (donated by the choir and Curiad Publishing Company), CF1 will perform the work and Curiad will publish the winning score. As well as choosing a winner, we may choose to perform some of the pieces that come close to winning.

If you need any more information, or if you have difficulty using the form please contact [email protected].

Good luck!
