Say it in 60 seconds
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.
