    Would you like to have Karl Jenkins write a piece for your choir? Would you like to perform that piece at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, New York? Showcase your performance and you can be in for a chance of receiving just that!

    To celebrate the release of Karl Jenkins' new album Motets, we are running a very special competition. The prize is a brand new short a cappella choral work composed by Karl Jenkins for the lucky winning choir, and dedicated to them. To win this unique prize, we ask you to show us your choir in action! Our favourite performance of a piece from the new album will win!

    NEWSFLASH! Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) is offering the winning choir the incredible opportunity to perform Karl Jenkins’ specially-composed new work in a world-famous concert hall – either Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center! Following the announcement of the winner in early May 2015, the winning choir will receive an invitation to appear as part of the DCINY Concert Series in New York City – more details about this exciting opportunity will be available to the winning choir.

    Please note that the opportunity to perform the new work at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center is optional for the winning choir, which would have to bear its own travel and accommodation expenses. Whether or not you’re able to take up this remarkable opportunity, you’re still eligible to enter and win!

    UPDATE: The vocal scores are out now! http://bit.ly/kj-vs

      How to enter:

    1. Video your choir performing any (whole) track from Motets
      Please note: to qualify for the competition you must perform one of the tracks from the new album Motets, and it must be exactly in the form it appears on the album - in Karl's brand new a cappella arrangement.
    2. Upload the video to YouTube
    3. Email a link to [email protected]
    4. If you like, spread the word (or just plain show off...!) by Tweeting it or posting it on Facebook using the hashtag #SingMotets !

    The winning choir will also have the exclusive opportunity to present the world premiere performance of the newly commissioned piece. So keep an eye out for performances on our YouTube channel - and who knows, perhaps the Boosey staff will upload something soon to kick off the competition...!
