Silver Platter Award Recipients

The Composers of Choral Music Community recognizes repertoire of the highest caliber in the Composition Showcase with the Silver Platter Award.
 
Pieces are selected for their value not only as works of art, but on their usefulness to an ensemble.  The question is asked "Will the singers and the audience enjoy learning and hearing these works?"
