We encourage excellence and enjoyment in the performance of vocal and instrumental music among young people and provide a supportive, friendly environment where young people can gain their first pleasurable experience of musical competition.
Prizes are awarded and all competitors receive a written adjudication and a general feedback session from experienced adjudicators on the day.  A Gala Concert is normally held in January along with other performance opportunies throughout the year to showcase all our winners, but will probably not run in 2021.

We had such a wonderful year in 2019 but since it has not been possible to run the competition in 2020, we gave performers the opportunity to play in our virtual concert on Saturday, November 14th at 7.00pm. We had 17 perfomers who will between them gave a concert lasting about 1 hour.

Sadly, there is little prospect of us getting back to normal in 2022.
