City: Lviv (Ukraine)

Date: 16 > 19 May 2021
The International Composers’ Competition SACRARIUM was born from the idea to create a project that will work on the meeting of the contemporary music of our time, with the writing of sacred music who combines musical genres associated with a sacred or religious theme.
All composers who wish to participate into the International Composers’ Competition SACRARIUM 2021 must write an original work for mixed chamber choir and string orchestra, associated with a religious theme, or tied to a specific liturgical function or must write a music inspired to elevate our souls to God, even without being embedded in a context of religious practice.
The 7th International Composers’ Competition SACRARIUM 2021 is open to all composers of any age and nationality, who want to share their musical and personal journey, attend seminars and opportunities for discussion, on the sacred art of our time, on the contemporary sacred music and on the figure of the Composer in this Third Millennium. The organization will select 12 composers who will have the opportunity to participate into the International Composers’ Competition SACRARIUM 2021 from 16 to 19 May in the city of Lviv (Ukraine), inside Maria Magdalena Church.
The 12 composers’ selected works will be performed in the final concert of the event by KLK Symphony Orchestra and Lviv Chamber Choir.
The concert will be recorded by a sound engineer with the selected works. A movie director will make a video of the concert.
