Greetings composers! 

We're looking for two fanfares for our upcoming Third Annual Gratitude Concert in Chapel Hill, NC.   Here are the guidelines for these fanfares:

  • Must be approximately 1 minute long
  • Must be for solo French Horn or solo Vienna Horn
  • Must be celebratory and attention getting! 

Please submit your entry as a reply to this thread, and upload the following files:

  • A .pdf file of the score is required
  • An .mp3 file is optional.  
  • Deadline for submission is Wednesday February 13, 2013, 4 pm EST. 

The chosen fanfares will be used at our concerts as:

  • Opening fanfare to announce that the concert is about to start
  • After intermission fanfare to announce that the second half is about to start

There will be a professional video made of this concert and the composer of the fanfares will receive a copy of the video, plus have his/her name in the program and in the online writeup of the concert.   All participants will also get a detailed feedback on their piece by horn players, advanced composition students, and teachers.

The upcoming concert is Saturday February 16th, 6 pm Third Annual Gratitude Concert

Good luck!

Noah - thanks so much for composing a fanfare, can't wait to give it a blow tomorrow.  Just looking at it, thinking about taking the last line up an octave  - giving it a grand finale.  What say you?

Thanks for playing it, Tim. Feel free to bring the last part up an octave. Can't wait to hear it!

Fanfare for French Horn

This calls for a drumroll, actually.

No .mp3 because Finale playback is awful, but I'm sure you'll do okay with the score alone ;>

Oh, and I'm not sure about the PDF quality - looks a bit awkward (at least on my side), however, once printed it should be much better. Sorry about that, no idea how to fix it really.

Greg - the .pdf looks great on this side.  I really like the quartal harmonies.  It's also fine with an .mp3.

Gav - looks and sounds great! 

Thanks to you both, and good luck!

Thanks Julie!

Here's my submission.

The title is Latin for 'to direct one's attention to...'

Here's my Fanfare, slightly revised from yesterday. :-)
