Young Musician Competition 2018-19

It’s that time of year again when we gather together all our talented instrumentalists and vocalists to take part in the local round of the Rotary Club’s Young Musician Competition, which this year will be held on Tuesday 16th October 2018 in the MPS from 9.30 am to 13.30 pm.

This fun competition is a useful performance opportunity for our musicians and is open to all level, grade and style of musician, aged 11 – 17 on 31st August 2018 and in any year group.

The school will of course provide an accompanist where necessary.  In the case of vocalists, guitarists and percussionists, CD backing tracks are permitted if preferred.  Students must provide two photocopies of their chosen pieces and accompanying parts.  Performances will be judged by members of the local Rotary Club, with appropriate skills, in the context of a live performance.

Although the students will remain in the MPS for the duration of the competition, any students (e.g. Year 11+) who need to attend specific lessons, may quietly leave to do so.

To enter the competition, students must complete an entry form and hand it in as soon as possible.  Entry forms are either available from Mrs Callow or on our website at https://www.crickhowell-hs.powys.sch.uk/faculties/active-creative-arts/young-musician-competition-2018/, where you’ll also find full details of the competition and an Information Pack.
