STUDENT Caitlin Buchan has won a spot to have her music composition performed nationally at concert venues.

The 15-year-old from Bendigo South East Secondary College is one of eight, selected from more than 100 entries in the 2017-18 Fanfare Competition.

All students will work with industry professionals including mentor composers, conductor and sound engineers to refine their composition before finally having it recorded by the Australian Youth Orchestra.

The compositions will then be broadcast as the audience cue bell in concert halls across Australia. Three sessions will be held throughout the year.
