2017 Composition Competition

Congratulations to Julijana Hajdinjak, the winner of our 2017 competition with her composition “Love Me.”

The Via Choralis Performance Society annually invites young composers aged 16 – 25 from across Canada to submit a piece for SAB or SATB choir (no divisi) with piano and, if desired, one other instrument. Compositions should be between 3 and 5 minutes in length and of easy to moderate difficulty. The winning piece(s) will be performed at one of the choir’s 2017 concerts which are normally held at St. Elizabeth’s Church, Sidney, BC. Up to two prizes may be awarded – a first prize of $350 and a second prize of $150.

This competition will not be held in 2018. Please check back next year.
