Bristol Choral Society

🎄 Attention aspiring carol composers! 🎄

Bristol Choral Society is delighted to announce a composition competition, adjudicated by Judith Weir and Stephen Jackson! Entrants should submit a carol for mixed voice choir (a cappella or accompanied by harp and/or piano). The winning work will be published by Shorter House, with two runners up also receiving prizes.

For more details on the brief, prizes, and timings, see this page.

Bristol Choral Society is conducted by Hilary Campbell and is known as one of the leading big city choirs in the UK. Established in 1889, the choir has an auditioned membership of around 160 singers and performs classical choral concerts with professional orchestras at the Colston Hall and Bristol Cathedral.

It was a real treat to sing in front of such a good quality choir.
Nina Bennett, Soprano soloist
