Shortlist composers announced

We’re very excited to be able to announce a shortlist of composers for ERSO’s composers’ competition.

Emerging composers were asked to submit an inspiring, contemporary classical Fanfare to help us celebrate ERSO’s 90th birthday.  We were thrilled by the number of impressive submissions and the huge amount of talent that was demonstrated and we were delighted to have acclaimed British composer Emma-Ruth Richards as part of our panel assessing the entries.


Selecting only a few composers to move onto the final stage was a really tough choice, but in the end we narrowed it down to five really talented composers who have been invited to the workshop final on March 15th.

The five finalists are:

  • Jared Destro
  • Alexander Papp
  • Andreas Swerdlow
  • Sarah Cattley
  • Caitlin Harrison

Watch this space for more information about the fantastic five!
