The International St. Romanos Melodos Competition, held in St. Petersburg, has been established by the International Orthodox Music Festival with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the blessing of the Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.

The competition has emerged as a continuation of the project "Lenten Concerts", which has been successfully carried out by the Orthodox Music Festival at the largest concert venues in St. Petersburg. In pre-revolutionary Russia, during Lent, foreign and Russian sacred music sounded in the concert halls. Such great works as "Vigil" by Rachmaninoff, "Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom" by Tchaikovsky, music by Taneyev, Gretchaninov and many other authors were especially written for these Lenten Concerts.

After the revolution of 1917, this tradition was forgotten for many decades. Now, trying to revive and strengthen this tradition, the organizers of the "Lenten Concerts" have been faced with a lack of repertoire. Besides the classical choral scores, there is a desire to acquaint the public with the latest compositions in this genre. In order to encourage contemporary composers to refer to the genre of sacred music for choir, the St. Romanos Melodos Competition, named after one of the greatest Orthodox hymnographers, was founded.

The board of trustees of the contest includes some of the outstanding composers of our time – Sofia Gubaidulina, Giya Kancheli and Arvo Pärt. The jury is formed anew each time and kept secret until the final round of auditions, along with the names of the finalists, which become known only after the announcement of the official results. After completion of the competition, all submitted works are placed in the musical archives on our website and are available for free viewing.

The First Competition was held in 2012 in two categories and collected 297 scores. The works of the winners were performed at a gala concert in the Grand Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonia and have been included in the repertoire of such prominent ensembles as the Chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre.  

The Second Competition which ended in April 2014, was timed to coincide with a significant date in the history of Russia – the 700th anniversary of the birth of the "abbot of the Russian land" – St. Sergius of Radonezh – which was celebrated by the entire Orthodox world. The contest was held in five categories, including major pieces for choir and orchestra and was attended by more than 120 composers from around the world. The music of the winners was performed by outstanding musicians in the Grrand Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonia, as well as within the framework of the large-scale cultural and educational project "Days of St. Sergius of Radonezh" – in the Hall of Church Councils of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour (Moscow) and the Kremlin of Rostov the Great.

 The Third Competition begins its work in July 2014 and will be completed by 2016. It is dedicated to the pious saints – Peter and Fevronia, Russian Orthodox patron saints of marriage and family – whose union showed the exemplary purity of their relations, loyalty, sincerity and piety. Contest participants are proposed three nominations: opera scene (libretto was written for it by Lyudmila Razumovskaya, based on the literary novel of the XVI century by Ermolai (Erasmus) Pregreshny); a lullaby and a hymn to the glory of the patron saints of family happiness, love and marriage.
