Shrewsbury School

BBC Young Musician of the Year

Monday 3 October 2011

Seven of our pupils are entered into the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition:

- Carys Gittins (UVI EDH)
- Jake Pople (UVI SH)
- Chris Hardman (UVI SH)
- Henry Kennedy (V I)
- Martin Chow (LVI SH)
- Galin Ganchev (IV M)
- Jacob Owen (V Ch)

All except Jacob played in the first round of the competition in Cardiff last week, and Jacob will be playing in the first round in Manchester on October 12th.  The standard for this event is extremely high, and our students are up against stiff competition from specialist music institutions as well as other schools, but they have all performed well so far.

The results for these first rounds will be announced early November, after which the following rounds are mainly held in London, and it is after this that things can get very interesting if we get anyone further.
