  • A Cappella Competition
    The phrase a cappella, Italian for ‘in the manner of the chapel’, has a religious connotation, though the discipline has grown and changed since those words were coined. From early twentieth century barbershop quartets to today’s popular film franchise Pitch Perfect and multi-platinum selling group Pentatonix, a cappella is now a pervasive and varied music style with widespread appeal. Open to all ages, this competition is set to be a new challenge for music students to produce a vocally charged performance.
  • Musical Theatre Competition
    From Legally Blonde to Les Misérables, the world of musical theatre has something for everyone and is the perfect way to show off both musical and dramatic skills. To take part in the ISA Musical Theatre Competition, choose a song from your favourite musical and learn it off by heart as either a solo or duet.
  • ISA Young Musician Competition
    The long-standing ISA Young Musician Competition celebrates the talent and passion for classical music that exists with our members’ schools.
  • Music Composition Competition
    The Music Composition Competition offers pupils an opportunity to explore the enchanting realm of music making. This competition emphasises both mathematical and creative thinking. Pupils will need to think mathematically when putting together melodies and rhythms, but also creatively when searching for something that hasn’t been done before, or unique lyrics to fit the feeling they’re trying to convey.
