Friday evening’s combined Piano and Instrumental Competition was a real feast of live music, and it was wonderful to welcome an audience into the Culachy Music School. Eighteen of our young musicians took part in total, with Samuel J, Edward L, Bethany W, Nyasha W, Raphael C, Kira G, Matteo C, Ryan W, Henry A, Cicy C and Borui C playing brilliantly in the Intermediate Class, while Tiger L, Delilah P, Marcus P, Davina H, Anson W, Lewis H and Nanami M all gave excellent performances in the Senior Class.
We were thrilled to be able to welcome Mr Angus Tully, who is taking over the helm as Director of Music in September, as our adjudicator. Mr Tully had a hard job judging these outstanding musicians, however in the end, Samuel J won the Intermediate Class on the piano and Nanami M took the top spot in the Senior Class, also on the piano. Henry A (trumpet) and Kira G (piano) were jointly awarded the Highly Commended prize in the Intermediate Class, and Marcus P (guitar) was Highly Commended in the Senior category.
Everyone played with real commitment , and our thanks and warm congratulations go to them all.
