The final of Highclare Young Musician of the Year competition took place on 6 June. With over 80 performances in the first round our 16 finalists had achieved extremely well to get through to the final making it a very difficult decision for our judges. The evening was outstanding, all the children performed with such proficiency and played with great confidence and musicality. The judges Nick Parrans-Smith, Ian Raybould and Amy Cassells were impressed by the high standard and variety of performances that took place. Each performer received constructive feedback on their performances which is very valuable to them. 3rd place was awarded to Lara Jeetley, 2nd place was awarded to Cadence Ball and 1st place was awarded to James Marrett. The overall house that won was Lancaster. Well done to everyone who took part. We are already looking forward to next year’s competition.
