This was semi-finals week… my goodness Mr Ben Parry, our adjudicator for the forthcoming final, has a tough job!
many congratulations to all those who have competed in this term’s
competition. Our juniors have set the standard with exuberant and
talented performances which hint of things to come; our intermediates have
shown the flowering of genius in all its variety; our seniors have simply
astonished us with their virtuosity, musicianship and courage.
Three stellar afternoons.
And now for the super-nova evening to come (I hope that’s an appropriate astronomical analogy… it’s a good thing, be sure!)
So, welcome all:
Thursday 28 March
6pm for Junior and Intermediate classes, and their adjudication; an interval to draw breath, and then
8pm for the Senior class and a final adjudication
Be there and be bowled over!
We are delighted to welcome Mr Parry to make all the difficult decisions: he is supremely well qualified – artistic director of the National Youth Choir, erstwhile director of music at St Paul’s Girls’ School London, and now assistant director of music at King’s College Cambridge – and his wisdom will, I am sure, add enormously to what augurs to be a marvellous celebration of the many and varied talents of our wonderful musicians.
