The results are in! Along with my own piece, I have the results of my Christmas competition and am now ready to reveal the winners! The rules and grading procedure were as follows:
You must create an original christmas/holiday piece! You must use a string ensemble, (or one of each string instrument) jingle bells, and tubular bells (the rest of the instruments are up to you!) The judging for the competition will be based on a point system from 1-10 under four categories:
There will also be another category if they so choose to use it. 10 bonus points for anyone who can make their piece sound like a Russian Christmas piece (see the nutcracker suite for inspiration)
Your piece is due December 25.
NOW FOR THE RESULTS:
In first place: Flat.io Earther-35
In second: Blue Moon-29
Finally, In third: Groovy-26
All of the entries where amazing songs and they all deserve the same respect, recognition, and love as the winners. It just so happens that these three did the best to fit in to all the categories. Well done competitors and see you in the next challenge!
