2019 Finalists

We are delighted to announce 10 shortlisted young composers from the FLYERS category of the Commonwealth International Composition Award . They have been carefully selected by our distinguished adjudicators, Barbara Law, Orphy Robinson and Duncan Chapman.
There was a large number of entries from around the world and some excellent pieces of music written by school-age composers.
The 10 shortlisted composers will each be given an online compositional ‘mentor’ to help them write a short piece of music for the Grand Final, which will be held at The Princess Alexandra Hall, Royal Over-Seas League on January 14th 2020. The pieces will be performed in front of a highly distinguished audience by brilliant professional musicians. The event will be live-streamed around the world.
We have also chosen three highly promising young composers from the STARTERS category, who will hear their pieces performed in different events.
