Sixth ISCMS Festival MASSive Choral Competition @ Busan International Foreign School


International Schools Choral Music Society

The title of the festival is MASSive – appropriate on a number of levels, not least it reflects the success of our previous festivals and the huge support ISCMS has achieved. Also, the Repertoire has now been chosen and includes the German Requiem by Brahms and a new commissioned work by Paul Barker also entitled MASSive.

We are proud also, to announce, that in Busan, John Hui, the inaugural winner of The Jenkins Award will have his composition The Hollow Men performed at the Gala Concert by the ISCMS Festival chorus and orchestra!
