Chronos Vocal Ensemble is an ambitious non-professional choir based in the Edmonton area. Founded in 2013, we aim to produce high-calibre choral performances in Edmonton, around Alberta and across Canada. We produce an annual season of concerts in Edmonton and perform regularly in the surrounding area. In 2015, we won the Healey Willan Grand Prize in the National Competition for Canadian Amateur Choirs. We have released three recordings: Presenting Chronos Vocal Ensemble (2015), The Simplest Way: The Music of Trent Worthington (2016) and most recently, Fresh: New Music From Canada (May 2018). We have toured around Alberta and the Prairies, and will perform at Podium 2018 in St. John’s NL this June.
Since its inception, Chronos Vocal Ensemble has championed Canadian music and supported the creation of new works. With the launch of the second Chronos Vocal Ensemble Choral Composition Competition, following the release of our newest recording, the choir is continuing that focus on bringing new, engaging Canadian works to the choral community.
We believe in supporting both established and emerging choral talent, creating two eligibility categories: Grand Prize (General) and Alberta Student Composers. Anyone who fits the general criteria is eligible to enter. To qualify for the Student category, an entry must meet all the general guidelines and some additional age and education requirements (see below).
Prizes for the competition have been generously provided by an anonymous supporter.
All entries must be accompanied by an Entry Form.
