Award for Greg Caffrey in the International Conductor's Union International Composers Contest in Ukraine
Belfast-based composer Greg Caffrey is one of five winners in the chamber orchestra category in the International Conductors Union International Composers Contest.
The award is for his Environments II for guitar and orchestra and was selected from a very high number of international submissions.
I’m delighted to have had my work selected by such and eminent jury, and to have an orchestral work performed in the Ukraine is something I’m very much looking forward to.
Works were submitted anonymously and the competition was adjudicated by respected composers from Russia, Austria, and Norway.
The winning works will be offered publishing and will be performed by the Odessa Opera Theatre Orchestra in 2021/22.
