We had a wonderful day listening to the best that the music department has to offer at the Young Musician of the Year competition. Our talented students were judged by Ruth Bolister (Principal Oboe for ENO), Christopher Atkinson (Director of Music at Lockers Park School), Adrian Bradbury (professional cellist) and Katy Hill (professional soprano for The Sixteen) in our four distinct categories: woodwind, brass and percussion; piano; strings; and voice respectively.
