Say it in 60 seconds

Dr Michelle Castelletti, Director of OFA

We were delighted with the enthusiastic response to our first composition project ‘Say it in 60 seconds’. We launched with a call for scores of 60 seconds written for solo trumpet.

We received a large number of exciting and diverse entries. After much consideration, our judging panel; Dr Michelle Castelleti (OFA Director), Paul Max Edlin (Composer) and Brendan Ball (Classical Trumpeter) came to their decisions.

Congratulations to our winners:

Darren Fellows, Richard Montgomery, Dan Jenkins, Carl Borg, and Richard Peat. 

Student composer Jacob Lewis was awarded a Special Commendation.

All the scores will be performed by virtuoso trumpeter Brendan Ball and professionally filmed to be broadcast on social media.

A new #sayitin60seconds call is coming soon, watch this space!

To celebrate the launch composer Paul Max Edlin wrote a piece exclusively for #OFAvirtual entitled Gone in 60 Seconds which is performed here by Brendan Ball.
