Wicklow Male Voice Choir is delighted to announce that we will be running our Bursary Competition for developing musicians and singers again this year after the very successful inaugural competition last year. The 2015 competition was won by East Glendalough student Alec Courser, who wowed the audience with his virtuoso performance on the Spanish Guitar.

As a community based choir we want to take every opportunity to encourage the abundant young talent that exists in County Wicklow and we are especially grateful to Sheridan Colohan Insurance Brokers, Wicklow for their very generous donation of the €1000 first prize! Without their support, this bursary competition would not be possible.

In addition to the prize, the winner(s) of the competition will be guest performers at the Wicklow Male Voice Choir Annual Concert in the Grand Hotel on Sunday 11th December 2016.

The closing date for applications to enter the competition is Tuesday 1st November 2016. The application form and rules of the competition are available for download here – bursary-application-form-and-rules
