We are proud to announce the winner of the Perth Symphony Orchestra Inaugural WA Composer’s Competition!

Olivia Davies (pictured), 25, a current composition student of University of Western Australia, won us over with her piece ‘Ferchensee’ about the lakes and mountains in southern Germany.

Conductor Jessica Gethin and Perth Symphony Orchestra will work with Olivia in the run up to the premier of her work at Symphony by the Lake, 8th March 2014.

Thank you to all composers who applied this year. The standard of work was truly remarkable, and sets the standard for more activity of this nature for WA composers and musicians.
