Imagine hearing your music played by the Australian Youth Orchestra, Queensland Youth Chamber Orchestra or the Sydney Youth Orchestra and broadcast at venues around Australia! If you are a budding composer or musician then the Fanfare Competition is an exciting opportunity for you.
The Fanfare Competition is open to young people aged 12-21 years, to compose a 30 second composition and submit a score and recording online. Selected participants will work with mentor composers Nicholas Vines and Lyle Chan to develop ideas and will either be selected for:
- Australian Youth Orchestra live recording session at Trackdown Studios and your piece will be broadcast at venues across Australia (8 people selected), or
- Queensland Youth Chamber Orchestra concert event at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (16 people selected), or
- Sydney Youth Orchestras concert event with the Sydney Youth Orchestra at the Vebrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium of Music (16 people selected).
- Plus two people will be selected to either create the sound design for an Australian Theatre for Young People or create a soundscape for tabletop gaming app Syrinscape.
The competition is looking for compositions that have ‘something to say’ and draw attention. You don’t need to have a strong musical background – your work just needs to draw attention for the intended use of cueing audiences to take their seats at performance venues. Entries for the 2021 Fanfare Competition are NOW OPEN. To enter read the guidelines and complete the submission form, on the Artology website. Submission deadline is Monday 31 May 2021, 5pm.
