Brass Prizes 2020

Thursday 6 February 2020

The Brass Prizes were held on Sunday 2nd February and were adjudicated by Richard Blake, trumpet with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and teacher at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

There were some fantastic performances in both the Junior and Senior classes and prizes were awarded to the following pupils:

Junior Prize
1st – Rose Farquharson (French Horn)
2nd – James Mackinnon (Trombone)
3rd – Henriette Seiger (French Horn)

Senior Prize
1st – Henry Hui (French Horn)
2nd – Archie Eyre (Trumpet)
3rd – Edward Pryce (French Horn)

The Junior Prize was more of a gentle masterclass providing the opportunity for the students to become confident on the performance platform, whilst the Senior Prize was a serious competition of major brass repertoire. Well done to all involved!
