I extend my thanks to all of our competitors and judges, who all took time out of their schedules to participate; we couldn't have done it without you! Congratulations to Charles and Adrian! Each of you have made a tremendous effort here with your music! :)
Both of the winning entries above will be recorded according to the original scores provided by the composers. If you would like to contribute to this effort by providing either vocal or piano recordings, you can post your resume below. We would be very happy to have you on-board!
Now that Composers' Forum's very first (and definitely not last) competition is over, let's open some discourse on the subject. :P Basically, just post your thoughts below. Here are some questions that can help you get started:
- What did we, the organizers/judges, do well? (timing, planning, scheduling, etc.)
- What did we do wrong?
- What did you think about the entries? The sonnet and its adaptation? The ensemble?
- If you ran a future competition, would you do anything differently?
- Do you have any ideas for a theme for the next competition?
I would like to have the next competition underway sometime before the beginning of Fall, but, of course, that can change at any time. I will post a thread about it after consulting with you guys, as I would like to organize the next competition as well! :D
Thank you, everyone. It's been a pleasure being a part of Composers' Forum's first competition (and I'm sure old Bill Shakespeare would thank you guys, too, for helping keep his art alive :P)
