We are delighted to announce the fifth year of the Christopher Brooks Composition Prize in association with the Rushworth Foundation. The prize provides a unique opportunity for a young artist/composer who writes original music to develop their talent; and access a wide range of support and guidance from across the music profession.

We are looking for an individual who wants to develop a long-term relationship with Liverpool Philharmonic. All of the previous Prize winners continue to work with us after their year has ended and benefit from continued support, guidance and commission opportunities.

£1,000 will be awarded to the winner of the competition. The prize-winning composer will write a new work for an Ensemble 10/10 (Liverpool Philharmonic’s contemporary music ensemble) which will be performed in Autumn 2020, and will take part in a bespoke programme of workshops, masterclasses and mentoring sessions from composers, performers, conductors and other industry professionals associated with Liverpool Philharmonic.

As well as the 10/10 commission, previous winners have produced an additional range of new works and commissions for ensembles associated with Liverpool Philharmonic including: Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir; a staged oratorio for Liverpool Philharmonic’s Youth and Children’s Choirs; vocal arrangements that have been recorded and released commercially by a Liverpool Philharmonic Artist in Residence; and commissions for a Wilfred Owen Commemoration event.
