Congratulations as well to finalists Chris McCann (Belfast) and Kevin Terry (Cork) who submitted marvellous works in an awards round that the jury felt exhibited a very high standard of composition.


HRSE wishes to thank all participants in the awards, including those that were not shortlisted. We hope composers will continue to support this annual opportunity by sending their incredible pieces to us each year.


Keep an eye out for these works appearing in our next season.
