The award in partnership with the Contemporary Music Centre will be for the best performance of a piece by an Irish composer at this year’s City of Derry International Choral Festival. The festival takes place from 21–15 October.
All choral works found in the CMC’s library are eligible for consideration. Works from the graded CMC Choral Catalogues as detailed below are particularly recommended, as they have been selected by specialist curators with a comprehensive set of guidelines about each work and a full set of sample pages. A cash prize plus vouchers to redeem on choral works from CMC will be awarded to the winning choir.
