    ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF THE 2004 GPO ORCHESTRATION COMPETITION!

    I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2004 GPO Orchestration Competition organized by Garritan Orchestral Libraries, Capellen Music Production and the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra.

    The Grand Prize winner is Richard Birdsall from the UK whose winning entry was titled "Knights & Magic."

    The runner-up winners are: Kentaro Sato (Ken-P), William Pearson and Craig Reeves. I am happy that Ken-P was present during the NAMM Press Conference when we announced the winners.

    Richard Birdsall will have his winning work performed by the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra on March 31, 2005, in Olomouc, Czech Republic and broadcast live on the Internet. He will receive airfare and hotel for the performance, as well as tuition to the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program.

    Original only the grand prize winner was to have his/her work performed. But because the four top entries were so very close, we decided, and the orchestra agreed, to work towards having all four works performed. So the grand prize winner as well as the three runner-up winners will have the opportunity to have their work performed by the Moravian Philharmonic.

    Congratulations to the following who where in the top twenty: Jun Yamamoto, Mario Rimoldi, Francisco Marchetti, Jarred Soule, Mark Slater, Jakob Olofson, Naoto Kubo, Iwan Roth, Minako Seki, Matthew Sargent, Terrence Dwyer, Jerry Wickham, Mark Winter, Greg Kramer and Steve Goers. They will each receive a prize which may include sampling software, audio software, notation software, VST plug-ins, subscription, a MIDI keyboard, or other products. Other outstanding entries were received and will receive honorary mentions.

    With nearly 200 superb entries from users around the world, the judges had a difficult time selecting the winners. The entries pushed the envelope for creativity and, by doing so, showed the wide range of capabilities of Personal Orchestra,. Works were judged blindly (I was not one of the judges) and were evaluated with a view towards composition, orchestration, color, balance, technique and other factors. The winning entries were masterful on all fronts - superb composition, extremely well-orchestrated, well-produced and made excellent use of Personal Orchestra.

    The entries were outstanding. I am honored that so many took such great time, effort and care in their submissions. There were so many good entries and I wish everyone could have their work performed.

    We will be posting some of the entries soon.

    Thanks to PapaChalk and DeSound from Northern Sounds for co-sponsoring this competition.

    Plans are underway for the 2nd Annual GPO Orchestration Competition. We have some exciting ideas for next years events and would welcome any suggestions.

    Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who contributed.

    Gary Garritan
