The Trustees of the Schellhorn Trust are pleased to announce the 2020 Schellhorn Prize for Sacred Music Composition competition.
Classical pianist Matthew Schellhorn founded the prize in 2014 in memory of his parents to foster artistic endeavour and encourage excellence in the Sacred Liturgy. The inaugural Prize was awarded in 2015 and was won by Marco Galvani. His composition was premiered during the Sacred Triduum organised by the LMS.
Founder and Chairman Matthew Schellhorn writes: “The Covid-19 situation has seen a hugely detrimental effect on the arts sector, and musicians have been amongst the most adversely impacted. At the best of times, 18- to 29-year-olds in the industry have the greatest financial need, requiring help and encouragement and some kind of infrastructure. It is hoped the prize will provide an incentive to be creative and to build up a working relationship with other professional musicians as we support each other.”
