Congratulations to Charlie Wells on his excellent achievement in music composition. Charlie’s ‘The Joy of the Night’ has been selected as one of the winners for this year’s National Fanfare Competition. This month Charlie will attend mentoring workshops to finalise his composition before it is recorded by the Australian Youth Orchestra. Charlie’s composition will be broadcast at professional venues around Australia in 2022.
Well done Charlie!
