About the competition
Fanfare is a creative composition opportunity for students aged between 11 and 18. It can be used as a classroom activity or for talented individuals.
Follow a series of challenges, and listen to some extraordinary repertory from the forthcoming Royal Opera House Season to devise your own fanfare and learn to write for an ensemble of professional musicians.
Winning entrants will be invited to the Royal Opera House to workshop their compositions with mentors and musicians from the Orchestra. Returning a few weeks later with their refined works to hear their music come to life played by the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House under the direction of Music Director and conductor Antonio Pappano. These recordings are then used to call our audiences into the performances every night of the following Season.
Keep an eye out for details on how to enter Fanfare 2018!
