Leatherhead Choral Society is holding a composition competition for a new work to be performed at a gala concert on July 7th 2018 as part of its 90th anniversary celebrations.

The composer of the winning entry will be presented with a cash prize of £350 and the opportunity to workshop the piece with the choir. 

The competition is being judged by a panel consisting of the internationally-known composer Alan Bullard along with the choir’s musical director Ian Assersohn and chair Lindsay Sampson. The result will be announced before the end of December.
