The Composers Competition – “Choir Laboratory. XXI Century” Saint-Petersburg
Date: February 12, 2011
The Composers Competition – “Choir Laboratory. XXI Century”. Music for Children and Youth – is held in 2011 for the 4th time. Its history is not very long, but the Competition is already well-known and popular among Russian composers. It has also shown that choir conductors are greatly interested in new music. Competition attracts participants from various regions and in 2010 it became international.
The winners of the Competition are given opportunity to publish their compositions through “Compozitor” Publishing House of St. Petersburg. Apart from the winning compositions, Competition Organizing Committee can choose for publishing several other works which seem promising for choir singing.
First collection of compositions was published in autumn of 2009 and distributed in St. Petersburg and Moscow. The second collection is due in March of 2011. We also plan to republish a shorter version of the first collection.
