New composition competition

We are delighted to announce our Composition Competition, for composers in years 10-13.

Royal Holloway Composition Competition

Are you a composer in Year 10 to 13?

Do you want to hear your music performed in concert and recorded by a chart-topping choir?

Royal Holloway is launching a composition competition for young composers. The winners of this competition will have their compositions performed and recorded by the Choir of Royal Holloway.

The Competition

There are two categories, based on age:

Year 10/11 (i.e. aged between 15 and 16 on 31 August 2022)

Year 12/13 (i.e. aged between 17 and 18 on 31 August 2022)

Three winners will be chosen from each category. The winning compositions will receive feedback from one of the professional composers at the Royal Holloway Music Department.

The winning compositions will be performed in a special public concert at Royal Holloway and recorded.
