Every two years the Vancouver Chamber Choir organizes the Young Composers Competition and presents a Youth & Music concert. Our goal is to identify and champion the latest generation of creative musicians - university, secondary and even elementary school students! The programme includes music about youth and childhood, new compositions commissioned from past winners of the competition, and performance of the finalist pieces in this year’s competition from which the 2011 winning pieces will be chosen. If you have musical young people among your family and friends, this is the concert for them – always a pleasure for young and old alike.

John Rutter - Five Childhood Lyrics
Jon Washburn - Song, our Sweetest Joy
Young Composers Competition Finalists: Elementary, Secondary and College/University nominees
Premieres of five newly commissioned pieces by young composers, including previous winners of the Young Composers Competition: David von Kampen, Rob Teehan, Kathleen Allan, Stephen Feigenbaum and Timothy Corlis
