An Artology, Sydney Opera House and Australian Youth Orchestra Project
Can you create an attention-grabbing 30 second piece of music? Are you aged between 12 – 21 years?
Take your seats! The fanfares will be previewed at the Sydney Opera House from October 2014. Do get along and give us your feedback. 8 young composers have worked with the fabulous Australian Youth Orchestra, Nicholas Vines (mentor composer), Nicholas Carter (conductor) to compose short musical fanfares that will replace the ding-dong bells used for audiences to take their seats.

The Fanfare competition could see the traditional Sydney Opera House cue bells replaced by 30 second fanfares composed by some of Australia’s most talented young musicians aged 12 to 21. The concept was created by London’s Royal Opera House in 2009 and has been brought to Australia by Artology in association with the Sydney Opera House and the Australian Youth Orchestra.
