The Vaughan Williams Society Song Prize
Wigmore Hall International Song Competition
This Competition celebrates the art of the song recital and honours the Lied’s place at the heart of the genre.
In 2019, The Society agreed to sponsor The Vaughan Williams Society Song Prize for the Best Interpretation of Songs in English by a British Composer held at the Wigmore International Song Competition. The prize was awarded to Clara Osowski from Minnesota.
In 2020-2021, Covid made the competition impossible. With restrictions now lifted, we will once again be sponsoring the prize.
