The Manchester Chorale Composition Competition – update


Our judges have now met and produced a shortlist – not a simple task with 175 scores to choose from, but certainly a labour of love.

In the last few days, we have been in touch with all the shortlisted composers, and the choir will be trying out their works in mid-June.

We expect to announce the final results before we break for the summer in early July.

Once again thank you to all who entered.

Plans for our 40th anniversary season are taking shape; please look out for further updates here and on social media.

In preparation for its 40th anniversary season, The Manchester Chorale invites composers to write a work of a celebratory nature.
  • 1st prize of £1,000
  • No restrictions on age or nationality
  • Text, in English, to be chosen by the composer
  • No entry fee
