The Fanfare competition was launched by the Royal Opera House in 2010 and is still running today. It is an entirely digital education initiative conceived of by Maya and orchestra education manager, Hannah Elder. It challenges young composers to write a fanfare, guided by online learning resources, to be recorded and uploaded through the ROH website. Winning entrants are then invited to workshop their compositions and hear them played and recorded by the orchestra of the Royal Opera House under the direction of Music Director and conductor Antonio Pappano.
