Junior Music Festival Final

Junior Music Festival Final

Junior Music Festival

There was some lovely playing and singing from the Third and Fourth Form pupils in the Junior Music Festival Final this year.

We had heard 96 performances in the rounds before half-term, and 27 of those were put forward into the final. Our adjudicator was Dr Alasdair Jamieson, who spoke warmly about the quality of the performing whilst also offering some constructive feedback on areas to improve.

The winners of the categories were as follows:

  • Drum Kit – Emily
  • Brass – Martha
  • Woodwind –Charlotte with Rachael and Emily highly commended
  • Piano – Weiqing
  • Strings – Charlotte with Beth and Weiqing highly commended
  • Boys’ Singing – Toby
  • Girls’ Singing – Charlotte
  • Guitar – James and Hugo

The winner of the overall prize for the outstanding performance of the evening went to Charlotte for her beautifully phrased performance of two unaccompanied Bach Bourrée dances on the cello.

Many thanks to Paul Miles-Kingston for this report.
