The purpose of the NewWorks competition is to foster new and engaging choral works by Canadian composers. The DaCapo Chamber Choir was founded in 1998 and is dedicated to exploring unaccompanied music, primarily of the 20th Century and later.

Composers, aged 25 and younger were invited to submit compositions for consideration in our new Young Composers Reading Sessions (YCRS).

Composers will have opportunity to interact with the conductor and choristers in an effort to continue to refine their compositional craft.
