|Summary:||Composer competition (£1,000 prize)|
|Deadline:||07 July 2014|

Greater Manchester Police Male Voice Choir (GMPMVC) and Cantare Ladies' Choir are looking for a new choral work to complement their first joint concert in summer 2015. Alongside Fauré's Requiem and Bob Chilcott's "A Little Jazz Mass", a new composition by a young composer (aged 30 or under) connected to the North West will be premiered.|
The finished work must be between 10 and 15 minutes long, suitable for an amateur choir (accompanied by professional musicians) and will be premiered in July 2015 in Manchester. The instrumentation of the new work may only use the same forces as the rest of the programme. Also, the work must have a legacy beyond its initial premiere embracing the fact that these two choirs only rarely come together to perform.
