After three outstandingly successful runs of “Qatar Primary School of the Year Competition,” Doha College is launching the 4th edition in a new format, at a new venue and featuring new categories.

Following the continuous rise of the competition, the country has seen choirs emerging or doubling in size, grander performances in local events and widened participation in the competition itself year on year. Owing to this success, the event is opening this year to secondary students aged up to 14, which will see it potentially doubling in size. QSCoY is fortunate to have had world-renowned choral expert Greg Beardsell as its head adjudicator for each edition since inauguration. Every year, Greg led electrifying workshops for children and teachers and succeeded in firing up the love of singing in hundreds of children.

Competition Ambassador Dana Al Fardan is a Qatari composer of international prominence, an alumna of Doha College and a champion of music education. She composed the competition anthem “Wings of the Falcon,” a rousing song that was the set piece of the inaugural QSCoY edition and has since been recorded with the Qatar Junior Choir and with members of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra. Doha College is excited to announce the new venue for the QSCoY competition as the Qatar National Convention Centre – a world-class setting that will provide modern, ample space for the thousand-plus music lovers expected to join the heats in February 2020.
