The Local Heat for the 19/20 Young Musician Competition was held at the LVS Theatre on Tuesday 21.01.20 18.00. There had been four vocalists and nine instrumentalists (4 piano, 3 violin, 1 cello and 1 percussionist. The vocalist WINNER was Alexandra Skashko (LVS) and RUNNER-UP Hannah Senior (Claires Court Senior Girls). The instrumental category was far harder to score because of the diversity of instruments played. The WINNER was Eleanor Holmes, violinist (St. Swithuns’ School, Winchester) and RUNNER-UP was pianist Leo Liu (Papplewick). Unusually, the three judges decided to mention three others who distinguished themselves during the competition. These were Michael Freebury, Percussionist (Luckley House); Jaidon Elliot, Violinist (Eagle House); Chung Sze Kwok, Pianist (TASIS).
The District Round is scheduled for 1.03.20 at St. Joseph’s College, Reading. The Regional Competition was to be held in Chelmsford and the National at NEC, Birmingham. Dates to be confirmed.
