It’s hard to believe that tomorrow it will be five whole months since our last ERSO rehearsal. But how great that Sunday 15 March was an amazing one..
It was the Final Workshop for our ERSO Emerging Composers’ competiton. We had a really tough choice to make in selecting a winner. Our fab five finalists were selected from a really impressive set of candidates and the workshop showed why these five earned their places in the final. Each composer had a totally unique approach to creating a Birthday Fanfare for Ernest Read – but the thing that united them was talent!
After much deliberation, we were delighted to announce that talented young composition student Alexander Papp was the winner. Alex will be creating an amazing new piece for the winner of our ERSO Soloist of the Year competition – watch this space to see who will be the lucky soloist who gets the chance to work with Alex…..
