Composer Quest Olympics

Posted by Charlie McCarron (Creator)

Hi backers,

As I was pondering what to do for our final Composer Quest composing quest, I thought it would be fun to do something that felt a little more like an adventure, by making it a series of composing challenges. And what better way to tie it all together with my international travel than the Olympic Games? Skills-sharpening competition, racing against the clock, glory, honor, and hopefully...good music?


The events are:

  • National Anthems - Arrange your favorite national anthem
  • Table Tennis - Passing notes back and forth with a partner
  • Weightlifting - Tuba solos
  • Hurdles - Charlie gives you a lead sheet to compose over
  • Relay Race - Teams of 4 compose parts of a whole composition
  • Composer's Choice - Choose an Olympic event and represent it in your piece

If you're interested in participating, sign up at

If you're not a composer, you can still follow along with the Olympic updates during my world tour podcast season. We're just a few weeks away from the start of my trip! Can't wait to get on the road and start sharing the adventure with you.
