2nd IFCM INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR CHORAL COMPOSITION

Entries are now arriving at a considerable pace, as the deadline for receiving entries in the IFCM Choral Music Composition Competition draws closer, and the excitement of new choral discoveries draws nearer. If you know a composer who has still not heard of this high profiled event, they still have time to get to work and make a submission. This is a unique opportunity for a talented composer of any age to have their work performed by amazing choirs such as the Philippine Madrigal Singers and VOCES8, … and earn an instant international choral profile. Entries close October 1, 2012. More information icb.ifcm.net
