Choirs for Christmas Competition 2011
Now in its thirteenth year, the RTÉ Lyric FM Choirs for Christmas Competition is inviting all choirs — school, college, amateur and semi-professional – to submit an entry for a chance to win exposure as well as cash prizes, ranging from €200 to €500.
Specific categories exist for primary and secondary school choirs, also for the best performance of a new commission: Christmas Day by Irish composer Elaine Agnew (pictured).
Entries will be chosen for airplay on Niall Carroll’s Classical Daytime 10am—2pm on RTÉ lyric fm from 8 December. The deadline to enter is Friday, 2 December.
