We were delighted to hear that our head judge, Kerry Andrew, recently won her fourth British Composer Award.

Kerry won her first British Composer Award back in 2010 for her choral work Fall in the Making Music category.

Then, in 2014, she won in the Stage Works category for her wild swimming opera Dart’s Love, and the Education and Community Category for her community chamber opera Woodwose, written for Wigmore Hall.

In the most recent awards, she has once again been honoured. This time, she won the Amateur or Young Performers category for Who We Are; a piece composed for a children’s choir which explores the refugee crisis. This large-scale vocal / body percussion work was recently performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the 600 singers of the massed National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.
