Jury Members of the International Choral Composition Competition 2023/2024
Published: Aug 28,2023

IFCM has launched its Sixth International Choral Composition Competition 2023/2024 to promote new works in choral music and to encourage innovation in choral writing that fits the needs of a 21st-century choir. We are looking for compositions that combine originality, imagination, and creativity within the context of contemporary global themes.

We are happy to announce the five jury members who will evaluate the submitted works and select the winners according to the competition’s Rules and Regulations. After a successful collaboration with commission composers for WSCM 2023 in ─░stanbul, the IFCM Board invited five composers who provided commissioned works for the Symposium to be the 2023/2024 jury members. We are thrilled to work again with:

  • Tracy Wong (Canada/Malaysia)
  • Michael Ostryga (Germany)
  • Eric Banks (USA)
  • Ana Maria Raga (Venezuela)
  • Özkan Manav (Türkiye)

The results of the competition will be announced by the end of November 2023.
