And be advised by acclaimed British composer Emma-Ruth Richards?

Composers aged 16  – 30 years old who are UK based are invited to submit a contemporary classical Fanfare for full symphony orchestra. 

The composer of the winning Fanfare will be awarded a prize of £250.  They will also receive a commission of £1,000 to create a piece for soloist and orchestra for the winner of the ERSO Soloist of the Year 2020 competition.

The winning Fanfare and the soloist piece be central pieces at ERSO’s 90th Birthday Gala concert on 28 February 2021.  The concert will be recorded and the winner will be given copies of the recording of both pieces.

Entry to the competition is free and applications close on 15th January 2020
