The Abbey, the Prep School for Woodbridge School held the inaugural Woodbridge Junior Young Musician of the Year competition on 1 May. We were delighted to welcome thirty-one participants from sixteen different Suffolk schools, all aged eleven and under to be adjudicated by Clio Gould, Leader of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Professor of Violin at the Royal Academy of Music. The level of music making was extremely high, and our distinguished adjudicator was very impressed by all the young musicians. Each participant received a certificate and a written adjudication, but there could only be three prizes. These were awarded to Amelie Clark from Mellis CEVC Primary School who came third playing the flute, Nina Varadarajan from Bealings Primary School who came second playing the piano and Etiane Cheung from Ipswich Preparatory School who came first, also playing the piano. A number of other performers were highly commended and all showed great potential.
