30 Apr 2020 – 30 Apr 2020,
Aim group: Composers in countries where the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat has member associations
Organisers: European Choral Association – Europa Cantat and Republic of Slovenia Public Fund for Cultural Activities – JSKD
The European Award for Choral Composers is the continuation of the “Golden Tuning Fork” Award, organised by AGEC over many years. The aim of the award is to discover unknown or less known choral works from different European countries, already published and/or performed or written for the occasion, that can be performed by a good average choir, not just by a top-level choir.
Choral compositions can only be nominated by a national or regional federation, member of ECA-EC that can submit up to 3 works in each category, composed by one or different composers within the past five years.
a) choir cappella
b) choir accompanied by up to four instruments
Every choral formation from two to four parts (divisi allowed), for mixed or equal voice choirs of all kinds of genres (classical, pop, jazz, etc…).
The performance time of a composition is limited between minimum 3 and maximum 9 minutes.
Each awarded work will be performed in the frame of the EUROPA CANTAT Festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2021. The composers of the winning works will be invited to the festival. ECA-EC will use their best endeavours to promote the publication and the spreading of the awarded scores.
Deadline for applications: 30/04/2020
The winning compositions will be chosen by September 2020
The full conditions of the competition will be published on www.europeanchoralassociation.org/activities/awards-and-competitions/european-award-for-choral-composers/
