Musika Bulegoa announces a choral composition contest

The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) celebrates its 100-year jubilee in 2022. As a part of the «ISCM Collaborative Series», various ISCM sections announce a choral composition competition, with the aim of giving new impulses to contemporary choral arts, which have suffered greatly in the past months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After the calls for works for equal choirs and children’s choirs made by other ISCM Sections in recent months, Musika Bulegoa and Musikagileak, Basque members of the ISCM, now open a call for choral works for amateur mixed voices. The two winning pieces will be premiered in autumn 2022 as a part of two choral concerts performed by Kup Taldea conducted by Gabriel Baltés: at the 53th Tolosa International Choral Contest (Gipuzkoa, Basque Country) and in one of the Basque capitals during the XIII Musikagileak Contemporary Music Circuit.

The winning piece will receive a prize of 1,500 euros, and Musika Bulegoa will also grant a special prize for the best work in Euskera (Basque language), with 1,000 euros.

The entry is free, and the deadline for submissions is 20th June 2022.
