We are very honoured to be performing again to raise money for this very worthwhile cause.
Judging of the entries has now taken place and Concentus is pleased to announce the winner of the competition is Clive Whitburn from Eastbourne, with a composition entitled ‘Pax Amor Caritas’. The choir is very excited to be incorporating this piece into their Summer concerts this year.
Assistant Musical Director Lou Soper said “We would like to thank all those who entered. It was a very tough decision as the entries were of a very high standard; we were so impressed that Concentus are going to make this an annual event.”
Competition judging now taking place!
