Thank you to all students who have entered this year’s Young Musician of the Year Competition 2020. The competition commences after half term with the following auditions, culminating with the Grand Final on Wednesday 18th March at the Wiltshire Music Centre. I am delighted to say that two former students are coming back to adjudicate the final; Huw Cheston (guitarist, now studying for his Masters in Music at Oxford University) and Dominic Irving (Pianist/composer/teacher). They will be joined by the Head of Academic Music at Downside School, Mr J. Bridges who will chair the adjudication panel.

Good luck to all our musicians who are taking part in the 29th St Augustine’s Young Musician of the Year Competition! Mr O
