The international competition for girls’ choir compositions is organised by the Latvian Composers Union, Latvian Section of ISCM.

ISCM Latvia invites the composers to submit their works for internationally recognised Riga Cathedral Girls’ Choir Tiara, led by the artistic manager and conductor Aira Birziņa. The awarded works will be performed in the concert – live event in November 2022 in the studio of Latvian Radio. The competition aims at promoting the composers from all over the world to create original compositions for the girls’ choir, to learn the specifics of choir notation and to expand the repertoire of the choir music in general.
