Choral Composition Competition 2013

The adjudication process was very difficult and time-consuming, as we received so many wonderful entries.

The prize winners are:

1st place – Sub Tuum Praesidium – Paul Flynn (Co. Cavan, Ireland)
2nd place – Love Song to Language – William Clyne (Corona, CA)
3rd place – The Three Ravens – Christian Martin (Whitney Point, NY)

Thanks to all of you for submitting your materials. As a composer myself, I appreciate the time, dedication, and skill it requires to put forth such quality work.

Mr Flynn’s and Mr Martin’s compositions are featured at our Choral Celebration concert. Mr Clyne’s will be featured at the Spring 2014 concert.
