Young Instrumentalist Title For Harpist Anna

CHRIST COLLEGE BRECON HELD ITS ANNUAL YOUNG INSTRUMENTALIST COMPETITION ON MONDAY EVENING

On Monday 6th March, instrumentalists went head-to-head in two competitions for individual musical performance. In the afternoon an Intermediate round was adjudicated internally by two visiting instrumental teachers, Clare Walker (Woodwind) and Tim Cronin (Violin and Viola) and in the evening an Advanced round was adjudicated by Andrew Auster, a former Director of Music at Shrewsbury School and subsequently Headmaster at several schools in the UK and overseas.

The winner in the Intermediate round was Daniel Kim (clarinet) who performed the Adagio from Concerto in Eflat by Kozeluck, the Runners Up were Daniel Sussmann (percussion) and Artai Hernandez Panes (bassoon). In the evening, the winner of the Advanced round was Anna Phillips (harp) who performed Impromptu-Caprice by Pierné; the Runner Up was Zoe Solomon (piano) with her rendition of Arabesque No 1 by Debussy.

The event was generously supported by Old Breconion W. Hugh Phillips JP, FCOptom, who also presented prizes and the trophy. He was assisted by last year’s winner, Hamish Sennett, who had also designed and built a fabulous case in which the trophy can be housed and transported.
