Students demonstrate outstanding talent during Music competition week
Last week saw our talented musicians demonstrate their incredible skill and flair in the first rounds of our Trinity Musician of the Year competition.
Players took part in a series of instrumental rounds across piano, woodwind, strings, singing and brass. The week culminated in a recital competition, accompanied by professional musician Alan Brown and adjudicated by British pianist, conductor and répétiteur Susanna Stranders.
The winners of each category will move on to our semi-final recital round in the spring term. From there, three finalists will be selected to perform a concerto with an orchestra to determine our Musician of the Year in the summer term.
The quality of playing throughout last week was exceptional. Every adjudicator mentioned how impressed they were with our students, making decisions difficult throughout, reflecting both the overall playing ability of our students and the sheer strength in depth.
