Composition Competition

The Berwick New Music International Composition Competition, which is being sponsored by Berwick-upon-Tweed Town Council, provides an opportunity for composers, both internationally and from Northumberland and the North East to have their work presented in a concert setting. The competition will be for a piece for a single stringed instrument (violin, viola or cello), and there will be two prizes, the Open Prize of £1,000, and the Berwick Prize of £500 for the best piece submitted by a composer from the North East.The judging panel, chaired by Mike Worboys, will consist of our three performers, Darragh Morgan (violin), Fiona Winning (viola), and Anton Lukoszevieze (cello), and the winning pieces will be performed at the relevant concert.(e.g. if one of the winning pieces is for violin, it will be played by Darragh Morgan at his concert on 23rd Sept).
