Eric Ericson

The Eric Ericson Competition for young choral conductors opens for registration today. The competition will be held in Stockholm during the period 23-26 October 2024.

The Eric Ericson Award is organized by Swedish Radio under the auspices of Berwaldhallen Concert Hall and in collaboration with the Swedish Royal Academy of Music, with the support of the Rosenborg Gehrman Foundation and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). The competition is planned to be held every three years. It last took place in 2021.

The 2024 Eric Ericson Award will be the fifth time the competition has been held, and aims as before to identify, encourage and support promising young choral conductors in the spirit of Eric Ericson. The ambition of the award is to achieve a very high artistic and competitive level in choral conducting, corresponding to the status that Eric Ericson achieved worldwide during his career. The Eric Ericson Award gives the next generation of choral conductors the opportunity to pursue an international career.
