Commonwealth Composition Challenge – meet the winners!

The Commonwealth Resounds, an organisation sponsored by ABRSM that focusses on connecting musical cultures and promoting musical initiatives and partnerships in Commonwealth countries, created the Commonwealth Composition Challenge in March 2020. School-aged pupils around the world were invited to invest their time during lockdown in composing music that reflected their feelings and experiences during this time. Hundreds of young people entered and a shortlist of 10 was drawn from these. Over 22,600 people voted from many different countries!
