LONDON INTERNATIONAL CHORAL CONDUCTING COMPETITION 2023
CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL GUEST CHOIR
Following the success of the inaugural London International Choral Conducting Competition in October 2018, plans were already well advanced for its second, expanded, edition in October 2020 when the worldwide Covid pandemic caused its postponement. Planning is now under way for our 2023 event.
LICCC 2023 will once more be held at London’s Royal Academy Of Music and will run from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd October 2023. A worldwide field of choral conductors will be assessed by a distinguished international jury both for valuable cash prizes and other career-enhancing opportunities.
LICCC is curated by Coro and Chantage, two of London’s best-established chamber choirs and we are seeking our International Guest Choir to join them, both in singing for the competing candidates and starring in our shared Gala Concert in the RAM’s splendid and historic Duke’s Hall.
In 2018 we were privileged to welcome Finnish composer/conductor Jaakko Mantyjarvi and his chamber choir FREIA. In 2020 we had been looking forward to welcoming the LSU Chorale under Dr. John Dickson.
MIGHT YOU BE OUR GUESTS IN 2023?
You would need to be in London, at your own expense, over the dates of the competition. Logistical help of various sorts can be offered.
Please contact or Mark Griffiths for more information
