OUR 2021 COMPETITIONS

WERE ALL ONLINE

Building on the success of our harp and one-minute monologue competitions in 2020, our 2021 Festival was fully online. We were excited to have created specially designed competitions for choirs, composition, harp, piano, strings and speech & drama. The Festival as a whole was a great success with many outstanding performances.

Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition – request to Festival Secretaries

During 2021 some music festivals have been unable to take place. To enter the Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition, a pianist has to be nominated by the festival at which they have won a top prize during the previous calendar year. Therefore we are reviewing whether it will be feasible to run this competition in 2022. If you are the secretary of a festival that normally nominates entrants for the Emanuel Competition, please contact Janice Twiselton – admin@northlondonfestival.org.uk – to let her know whether or not you wish to nominate an entrant for the 2022 competition.
