Third Annual Choral Composition Contest

The Huntsville Master Chorale is a long-standing, dynamic performing chamber choir that fosters creativity by keeping excellent choral singing alive in North Alabama. THE HUNTSVILLE MASTER CHORALE nurtures renowned and emerging composers by commissioning and performing new works while continuing to perform a variety of classic choral literature. The Chorale keeps the art of singing fresh for our audiences.

As part of the 2019-2020 season, the Chorale is sponsoring a choral composition contest. The winning composition will be performed by the Chorale in the Spring concerts in 2020.
