    another orchestral competition for GPO any time soon?

    well, as the title of the thread blatantly states...
    is there any talk of repeating the GPO composition competition in the near or not-so-near future?

    I think you may be referring to the "Orchestration challenge #6"

    I see,

    Well that would be up to Gary.

    Do you have an orchestra lined up to play our pieces Gary? That was petty exciting last go around.

    I think I've heard Gary trying to get an orchestra to play at Carnegie Hall for the competition. Maybe it'll be announced soon, I'm pretty anxious to see the pieces entered in the contest.

    I think I remember reading that the Carnegie Hall thing fell thru, but Gary was still looking for other options.

    Jim Jarnagin - no not THAT Jim Jarnagin, the other one.

    Yep - the union regulations and restrictions made what Gary wanted to do there practically impossible.

    I remember wanting to get a recording of the performance of the choir I sang in (It was mass choir comprised of 3 college choirs singing Brahms' Nänie and Schicksaslied with the Brooklyn Philharmonic led my Helmuth Rilling), but the Union wouldn't let them distribute it (if they let it get recorded at all). Bummer.
    I already have an idea of what I am doing for the next one, when announced.

    I'm just trying to figure out if I start something specifically for a potential competition, or whether I just submit a movement from my latest work...
