Fleischmann International Trophy Competition

Fleischmann International Trophy Competition

Saturday, 31 October 2020, 5.00pm

Applications are now open for the Fleischmann International Trophy Competition in the 2021 Festival and beyond.

The Fleischmann International Trophy Competition consistently features top class adult choirs from many countries. A programme of a cappella (purely vocal) music consisting of either three or four contrasting works whose total duration (actual singing) is between ten and twelve minutes, is required. The music must be purely vocal without the addition of percussion instruments. Choirs whose programmes do not comply with the prescribed limits will incur a time penalty.

The contrasting programme must represent an historically-balanced and coherent range of styles and must include:

A piece composed before 1750
An original work by a living composer
A work by a composer of the choir’s native country
Subsequent to final acceptance, a choir may not change its repertoire, nor the order in which it will be sung. The five member international jury allocates marks for the technical and artistic quality of the chosen programme and the overall quality of its performance. It will also take into account how well the choir communicates with the audience in a performance situation.

– Closing date for receipt of completed applications is 31st October of the preceding year.

– Open to any choir of international standing (except specifically children’s choirs)

– Minimum twenty/Maximum sixty voices

– Successful Applicants will be notified by email within two weeks of the closing date. Early applications are welcome, and we will be happy to provide an early confirmation to choirs where this is possible.
