Christopher Brooks Composition Prize

Christopher Brooks Composition Prize

We are delighted to announce the fourth year of the Christopher Brooks Composition Prize in association with the Rushworth Foundation.

The prize provides a unique opportunity for a young artist/composer who writes original music to develop their talent and access guidance and support from a wide range of people working in the music profession.

£1,000 will be awarded to the winner of the competition. The prize-winning composer will write a new work for an ensemble from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra which will be performed in Autumn 2019, and will be supported with an individual programme of workshops, masterclasses and mentoring sessions from composers, performers, conductors and other industry professionals associated with Liverpool Philharmonic. The British Academy of Songwriters, Composers & Authors (BASCA), the voice for music writers, will also provide a year’s complimentary membership for the winning composer.

Previous prize winners have: written new work for Ensemble 10/10 (Liverpool Philharmonic’s new music ensemble) and Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Choir; met with international composers, artists and conductors; attended orchestra rehearsals and masterclasses; had hands-on experience of orchestra management, recording production, librarianship and education work; met with Liverpool Philharmonic’s  contacts across the music industry.

Please note that applications for the 2018/19 Christopher Brooks Composition Prize have now closed. If you have any questions please contact learning@liverpoolphil.com
