Event Description

Every December VocalEssencand the American Composers Forum (ACF) celebrate the tradition of Christmas Carols in their own unique way: championing today’s composers, exploring new works, and rediscovering lesser-known works of the past. This year marks the twentieth year of the Welcome Christmas Carol Contest as VocalEssence and the American Composers Forum provide composers with the opportunity to compose a modern-day carol.

Open to composers of all ages, this year’s contest requires writing a carol for SATB - A Cappella Choir. 

Each year, the contest has produced wonderful new settings of familiar texts and carols based on existing poems and original texts. The two winners will each receive a prize of $1,000. The winning carols will be premiered at the December 2, 8, 9, and 10, 2017 Welcome Christmas concerts featuring the VocalEssence Chorus & Ensemble Singers.
