Competitions for Young Composers

CYM has run an annual composing competition for young people since 2006. In 2017 this is being opened up to those living in Hertfordshire as well as Cambridgeshire as part of an initiative to extend opportunities for young composers across East Anglia. Full details of the 2017/18 competition can be found here.

A new competition, the Snape Young Composer of the Year, is being organised by Aldeburgh Young Musicians for children living in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex (www.snapemaltings.co.uk).

Winning entries from both the Cambridge and Snape competitions will be eligible for a new award, the East Anglian Young Composer 2017.

Cambridge Competitive Music Festival

This Festival, first begun in 1934, aims to encourage musicians of all abilities to share their music with others and to receive advice and encouragement from experienced professional musicians. It takes place in March and offers over 100 classes for instrumentalists and singers. Further information from the Festival website.

Cambridge Young Musician of the Year

The Cambridge Young Musician of the Year competition was held in 2006, 2008 and 2010. CYM regrets that it has not had the manpower to run the competition since then. Details of the first three competitions can be found via the links top left.
