Future Makers Composition Competition

Classical Sheffield seek entrants for the Future Makers Composition Competition

Classical Sheffield is pleased to offer an opportunity for Sheffield based student composers by launching a composition competition as part of its 2019 Classical Weekend festival. Making more music, in more places, for more people, Classical Sheffield is a charity committed to championing classical music-making in the city. Over 1000 of the city's music-makers will be joined by performers from across the world in a huge range of performances taking place 8-10 March 2019.

Themes for the 2019 festival are: Celebrating Women in Music (as part of International Women's Day), Beyond Borders, and Future Makers. As part of the Future Makers strand, Classical Sheffield has teamed up with the internationally acclaimed ensemble Lawson Trio. The Lawson Trio have gained recognition both for their performances of the cornerstones of the piano trio repertoire as well as lesser-known works and commissioning of new music.

Sheffield based students are invited to write new compositions for the Lawson Trio. Two prizes will be offered: 1st Prize: £300 and 2nd Prize: £200. The prize winners will have their pieces performed by the Lawson Trio as part of the festival on Sunday 10 March 2019 at Firth Hall.
