Bedford Arts Choir: Open Call for Composer based in the East of England

Back to news


The Bedford Arts Choir is a new and unique music group for people of all abilities, performing specially commissioned works by local composers and arrangers. The choir was founded last year to perform Johnny Parry’s Concerto Magnificent: An Anthology of All Things, commissioned by Bedford Creative Arts. We are following up two sell-out performances of this spectacular new work by continuing to seek out, rehearse and perform new and innovative music. The choir is the legacy of this commission and continues to be supported and developed by Bedford Creative Arts.

We are currently looking for a composer based in the East of England to write a new piece or pieces for the choir, culminating in a performance in December 2013. The successful work will be written in response to Bedford and/or the choir itself. This is an exciting opportunity to work with a Choir of all ages to bring contemporary music to new audiences and performers. We aim to broaden the audience of contemporary experimental music from the ground up.
