Own Composition & Performance

Compositions are considered and evaluated by the Adjudicator prior to the Festival, and the performance itself is then judged on the day. It is therefore essential that all compositions arrive in time for the Adjudicator to have ample opportunity to consider and reflect upon the work long before the Festival itself. 

All classes may be entered non-competitively

Compositions must be forwarded to the Co-ordinator: 
Mrs Ruth Pitts, c/0 DPAF, 37 Pinwood Meadow Drive, EXETER, EX4 9LA 
to arrive NOT LATER than 12th February 2022.

Compositions may be of any style for any combination of instruments. Composers may arrange a live performance or bring a recording to be heard. The class for 16 year olds and under is suitable for GCSE compositions, the class for over 16 years age for A Level compositions.

Adjudicator: Michael Johnson B.Mus (London), PGCE (Cambridge), ARCM (piano) ARCM (piano) ARCM (singing)
