    Weʼve raised £400 to help fund a sacred music composition prize

    London
    Funded on Thursday, 24th December 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Covid-19 situation has seen a hugely detrimental effect on the arts sector, and musicians have been amongst the most adversely impacted. I hope this prize will provide an incentive to be creative and to build up a working relationship with other professional musicians as we support each other.

    The Prize offers a monetary award and the winner will also have his or her composition performed by a professional choir during Mass on Christmas Eve at St Mary Moorfields Catholic Church in the City of London. (Should the Covid-19 situation preclude this performance, another performance opportunity will be arranged.)

    It is open to composers aged between 18 and under 30 or under on the closing date, regardless of nationality, who are studying, or have studied, at any conservatoire or university in England or Wales.

    Entries will be judged by a panel of professional musicians, including the winner of the inaugural Prize, Marco Galvani.
