Friday Afternoons seeks young songwriter

19 August 2014

The 2014 Britten Young Songwriter Competition is on the hunt for a new song which is based on traditional folk influences, from anywhere in the world.

Aldeburgh Music’s international singing project, Friday Afternoons, was launched three years ago in celebration of the centenary of composer Benjamin Britten. The website was initially set up to help engage Suffolk school children in singing, providing them with twelve songs that were written for children by Benjamin Britten. Friday Afternoons quickly spread to become an international project, with thousands of schools and choirs downloading the songs and resources to learn the music for the annual grand finale event.

This year Aldeburgh Music commissioned nine new, fun songs which are all inspired by traditional folk texts. Musicians aged 18 or under are now invited to take part in the Young Songwriter Competition to set music to a traditional folk text from anywhere in the world. Winners from the competition’s two categories (13 or younger, and 14-18) will have their song recorded and published on the Friday Afternoons website, and performed at Snape Maltings concert hall as part of the national Friday Afternoons culmination event.

Entries for the competition must be received by Wednesday 10 September. For more information, visit the Friday Afternoons website
