Young Musician of the Year 2020

The annual Young Musician of the Year competition takes place in the new year.  Auditions will be held after the February holiday and the Young Musician Final will take place on the evening of Tuesday 10th March 2020 at 7:15pm.

There are two sections:  Junior competition for S1 – S3 pupils and the Senior competition for S4 – S6 pupils.

Singers, drum kit players and traditional instrument players are not eligible to participate.  All orchestral instruments and pianists are invited to take part.

Auditions:  All entrants will play one piece at audition stage.  Junior competitors must perform at minimum level grade 2.  Senior competitors must perform at minimum level grade 5.

Final:  If successful at audition stage, Junior competitors will play one piece in the final.  Senior competitors will prepare a programme of two contrasting pieces not exceeding 10 minutes.

What are we looking for?  Successful competitors will be those who prepare well for their audition allowing them to give a technically assured performance which also displays considerable musical sensitivity.

To apply, please see Mr Langford before the end of January.  Auditions will be held after the February holiday weekend.
