I am delighted to announce that I have won 1st place in the Manchester Chorale 40th Anniversary Competition – £1000! The competition was judged anonymously and my piece ‘When Voices Rise’ was chosen to help the choir celebrate their 40th anniversary year. The piece will be performed throughout their season next year so I will be looking forward to hearing it then! Congratulations to Martin Neill and Lydia Jane Pugh who also had pieces selected, looking forward to hearing their pieces too. I will update you when I have more information regarding performance dates.
