NewWorks

2021 NewWorks choral composition competition

The DaCapo Chamber Choir strives to find and present choral music that is challenging and rewarding both for performers and listeners.  In this year’s competition we are seeking new works which are based on texts of substance, matched with music that nuances and extends the impact of the text. 

Composers are encouraged to submit works whose texts touch on issues such as (but not limited to) mutual respect, civility, or peaceful co-existence. Our goal is to engage listeners with the music, and stimulate, perhaps challenge, the mind with texts of substance.  While we certainly wish to make “words sing,” we want to go beyond that and give voice to ideas.  We are inviting submissions that will do that.
