Young Musician of the Year Final

Another fantastic evening of music featuring Luke Roberts, acoustic guitar (Yr 9); William Hughes, piano (Yr 11); Kyle Krishnamma – Hillier, drum kit (Yr 12); Amy Charlesworth, voice (Yr 12) and Jess Pfundner, voice (Yr 13).

We welcomed Sacha Johnson, a professional percussionist with some of the leading orchestra’s in the UK as our adjudicator for the evening’s final. He was extremely complementary about the high standard of musicianship and felt all of the finalists could have been awarded with the trophy.

Well done to Jess Pfunder, who is our Young Musician 2013, for her performances of The Man That Got Away (H. Arlen and I. Gershwin); My Funny Valentine (R. Rodgers) and I Dreamed A Dream (C. Schonberg).

‘Beautifully sung. Each song with a degree of depth and emotion. A real attempt to make each song unique. Lovely performed program’ Sacha Johnson

The evening finished with a performance from Sacha, on the vibraphone, as well as our Gifted and Talented Ensemble, which was directed by local professional musician, Roshan Hughes.

Well done to everyone involved!
