Bromsgrove Music Competition in 2016 for your talented young musicians with generous cash prizes

This is a rare performance opportunity for selected young musicians in Worcester to play their chosen pieces to an audience in Worcester’s glorious Huntingdon Hall on Thursday 10th March 2016. Two awards will be given on the night by an experienced panel of adjudicators for the most outstanding performances in each of two categories and those musicians will receive a financial award in the form of a bursary.

Please don’t let any of your young musicians miss this valuable opportunity to perform. The deadline to apply is now only a week away -17th January 2016.  Applications can be made online via the website below.

This exciting new classical music platform is only for the school children of Worcestershire aged 9 - 17 who play instruments or sing.  They have to be of a standard that is equivalent to Grade 4 (Junior Section aged 9-13) or Grade 6 (Senior Section aged 14-17). There will be an audition round prior to the concert and those musicians selected will play before a live audience at the Huntingdon Hall in Worcester.  This opportunity carries on the traditions of the well-known Worcestershire Young Musician of the Year which the renowned Bromsgrove International Young Musician’s Platform have now taken over from the County Council.  The total bursary monies of £2,500 can buy many lessons, much music or new instruments. 

Please look at the website link to see the details of this new Junior Platform opportunity at http://www.marywhiteyoungmusiciansplatform.com/ and note its association with the existing Senior Competition, The Bromsgrove International Young Musicians' Competition, now in its thirty-sixth year.
