Herald the fanfare!
Imagine hearing music you wrote broadcast at venues during the Perth Festival! Instead of the traditional bells that let the audience know it’s time to take their seats, we are working in collaboration with WAAPA at ECU to herald the start performances across the Perth Festival with fanfares written by students aged 15 – 25.
Entries for Fanfare have now closed. Four young composers are in the process of working with composer Rebecca Erin Smith to refine and develop their compositions – which will then be performed and recorded by professional musicians.
Rebecca Erin Smith is a WAAPA Graduate and an award winning Australian composer who specialises in collaborative media and concert works. A Fulbright Scholar, her most recent commissions include works for Edith Cowan University, WA Youth Orchestra, Phoenix Ensemble, and GreyWing Ensemble.
Tune in soon for more information about our young composers. In the meantime, have a listen to these fanfares for an idea of what to expect at select Perth Festival venues in 2018:
Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man
Bill Conti’s Fanfare For Rocky
Henry Purcell’s Fanfare
Royal Brass Fanfare
Flourish 3, London Fanfare Trumpets
This program is inspired by Fanfare programs run by Artology and the Royal Opera House.
