Is your school participating or planning to participate or perhaps, you are undecided about the MUSON Schools Competition? Here’s all you need to know about the MUSON Schools Competition 2020, especially as it regards school preparations, music pieces, dates and competition category.

Schools like Halifield School and Meadow Hall are now regular participants in the MUSON School competition.

You will recall that in 2018, Meadow Hall Junior Choir emerged joint winners alongside Little Orchid Learning Place School in the choir category of the School Competition. It was gathered that Little Orchid School was eventually crowned at the MUSON Winners Concert.

The Musical Society of Nigeria (MUSON) 

MUSON was founded in 1983 as a result of the interaction and commitment of some friends who love and appreciate classical music. These distinguished Nigerians included Mr. Akintola Williams, Mr. Louis Mbanefo, Chief Ayo Rosiji, Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi and Mrs. Francesca Emanuel.

The main objective of MUSON is the promotion of the understanding, enjoyment and performance of classical and contemporary music in Nigeria.

MUSON is registered as a charity and receives no public funding from State or Federal Government. The vital work it does in support and promotion of the Arts, since its inception, would not have been possible without the generous grants, sponsorships and donations by its corporate and individual partners and supporters.
