Eleanor Williams (Year 10) won the Intermediate Round for her piano performance of Gymnopédie No 1 by Satie, and in the Advanced class, Simon Phillippo chose Megan Jones (Year 12) as the clear winner, for her performance on the harp of Fire Dance by Watkins.
The runner up in the Intermediate round was Peris Hernandez Panes (Year 9) for his ‘cello performance of Pieta Signore by Stradella. In the Advanced round, Hannah Mathias (Year 13) was chosen as runner up for her ‘cello performance of Tzig-Tzig by Squire.
