2 NS Members Ron Williams & Andy Brick Win the ERM Competition!
Congratulations to Ron Williams and Andy Brick for placing in the top 5 of over 400 entries in the ERM Competition. This is a prestigious and highly-regarded competition.
Their winning orchestral compositions will be featured in the CD series "Masterworks of the New Era" and will be performed and recorded by the Kiev Philharmonic. The goal of the competition is to bring the un-heard new "Masterworks" of living composers to the public. The CD series receive world-wide publicity and distribution with radio, television, retail stores, internet stores and print media.
Ron Williams' score "Nightwinds" was one of the five winners selected.
Andy Brick's "Hungarian Overture" was also selected as one of the five top winners. I had the opportunity to hear Hungarian Overture performed with the Moravian Philharmonic during the GPO Competition concert and it is an extraordinary and captivating work.
Ron and Andy submitted the works realized with GPO. This means that at least two of the top five winners used GPO for their submissions.
The real credit goes to the fine musicianship and artistry of Ron and Andy and it is an honor to have them both as part of our community.
