Gregynog Composers Award

Composers of any age or nationality are invited to submit unpublished works to be considered for a substantial award - the Gregynog Composers Award of Wales 2000. Works should be for SATB choir (24-30 voices) with piano accompaniment, 9-12 minutes in length, making use of a sacred text and suitable for amateur performance. Composers may include a section for female voices.

An additional special award, the Gregynog Young Composers Award, will be made for the best work submitted by a composer under 26 years of age, not winning the main award.

Application forms are available from the Festival Office, Gregynog, Newtown, Powys, SY16 3PW, Wales, UK. Phone: +44 (0)1686 650224. The deadline for submissions is 6 March 2000.
