Allmänna Sången &
Anders Wall Composition Award
Allmänna Sången & Anders Wall Composition Award is a composition competition for choir music aimed at women composers. The competition is international and targets women composers irrespective of profession or nationality. All entries will be reviewed by a reputable international jury.
Allmänna Sången & Anders Wall Composition Award was announced for the first time in 2013, when Allmänna Sången celebrated fifty years as a mixed choir. In connection to the anniversary, the choir announced a competition for women composers, together with Anders Wall, aiming to highlight them and their work, and inspire the creation of new choir music. Since then, the competition has been arranged three more times.
