Every year, the Royal Opera hosts a competition for students to compose 30 second fanfares which, if chosen, are recorded by the opera house orchestra and used to recall the audience back to the auditorium from the interval.

This year, the winners were two Y9 students from Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar, Alford.

Thomas Brook and Emma Shaw will spend a day at the Royal Opera and meet the musicians, before returning later in the year to hear the orchestra record their fanfares, and then see them performed during the interval of an opera.
