Sacred Music Contest

published 8/8/2019

The Charles Wesley Center for Sacred Music and Arts, a ministry of Wesley United Methodist Church in Winona, announces its first Sacred Music Contest for song writers. This year’s Sacred Music contest will be an invitation for song writers to create new songs for the observance of Lent that reflect some of the lament our nation is experiencing.

These are the categories:

  • New lyrics that use familiar meters and may be sung to familiar tunes
  • Original tune and lyrics in the style of a hymn
  • Original tune and lyrics in a contemporary style
Each category will have two separate classes, one for children/youth and one for adults. Entries must be postmarked by January 15, 2020. The judges will arrive at their decision by February 8, 2020.

Start here for more information and details regarding submitting an entry.
