On Sunday, 3rd November 2013 at 2.30 pm in the Village Hall Leighton Road, Toddington we held our 2013 Young Musician of the Year Competition where 6 local students aged between 12 and 18 competed for a first prize of £500 and runner-up prize of £100.  As always the competitors were of a very high standard and our adjudicator decided to award a joint first prize to Ben Goldscheider (a very talented young horn player who is going on to compete in the BBC Young Musician competition) and Neil Martin (a really accomplished cellist).  Our runner up  was Alexandra Ridout who plays the trumpet and obviously has a musical future ahead of her.  We hope to arrange for Ben and Neil to provide a concert for us after our AGM on Saturday, 15th February 2014 – look out for our 2014 programme coming soon.
