CMC award for best performance of a piece by an Irish composer:
In partnership with the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland, we will present an award for the best performance of a piece by an Irish composer. All choral works found in the Contemporary Music Centre’s online 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 the Contemporary Music Centre will be awarded to the winning choir.
