Seán Ó Riada Composition Competition

The Seán Ó Riada Competition is a composition competition which invites the submission of new works from Irish composers.  The competition is a collaboration between the Cork International Choral Festival and Chamber Choir Ireland.  The winning composition is selected annually by a panel, comprising of composers and choral experts. The selected composition receives its premiere performance during the Festival at a Gala Concert given by Chamber Choir Ireland, conducted by Paul Hillier. The composer of the work also receives a cash prize kindly donated by the O Riada family.
