New Choral Writing Competition – Choirs for Change

Choirs for Change is thrilled to announce our newest project: Eastern Horizon!

This will be Canada’s first choral writing competition that celebrates the work of composers of marginalized identities who have been affected by the structural injustices of society.

Spread the news – entry is free! Follow the link for the full competition details:

To be eligible to enter in this competition, you must identify with a community that has been historically and/or traditionally marginalized by the structural injustices of society. A non-comprehensive list of these communities include: First Nations people, femme folk, women, people of colour, African Canadians, LGBTQ+ people, newcomers, people with disabilities, Acadians, and Métis. Performances of the shortlisted works will be presented in June in Halifax and Lunenburg by the Eastern Horizon choir. The choir will be directed by Jack Bennet and Christina Murray, and will consist of experience, high-level choristers from across Nova Scotia.
