Deadline: 04 December 2019
Date Posted: 13 November 2019
Details: Thatís right, itís another talent competition. Except this one champions the unorthodox, the unusual and the unheard.

Whether you want to try out ideas on stage, or you fancy dipping your toe in alternative classical waters, Battle of the Bands is a chance for soloists, new music ensembles, improvisers and performance artists to showcase their work in front of a friendly crowd and panel of industry experts.

Shortlisted acts get the chance to perform a 5Ė15 minute set in the cosy setting of The Victoria pub in Dalston on 29 January 2020. Past winners of this night have gone on to perform at future Nonclassical nights, been shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards, and have even released music from the Nonclassical label.

Interested? Fill in an application form, including a link to a demo track either on SoundCloud, YouTube or Vimeo. Deadline for applications is Wednesday 4 December. Applicants will then be notified as to whether their application has been shortlisted before Christmas, with successful applicants performing on Wednesday 29 January 2020.

We are particularly interested in applications from under-represented groups across BAME, female-identifying groups, disability, and acts from diverse musical backgrounds.
