Once again our annual Young Musician of the Year competition provided us with an afternoon of wonderful music by the young musicians chosen to compete .  The winner of the first prize of £500 was Rachel Ridout (a wonderful vocalist) and the runner-up prize of £100 was awarded to Jasmine Blackshaw-Britton (very talented young cellist who was the youngest of the contestants).  The standard of our competitors was very high so congratulations to all who took part.  Rachel will be providing the concert after the AGM on 13th February 2016 so do come along then and hear her sing.

The annual Toddington Music Society Young Musician of the Year Competition is over for another year and once again we were amazed at the talent there is among the young people of this area.  We had 5 contestants this year covering a range of instruments.  The adjudicator found it very difficult to choose but the worthy winner of the £500 first prize was Alexandra Ridout playing the trumpet.  The runner up this year, claiming his prize of £100, was Nicky Yan playing the guitar.  Alexandra will provide the music for the concert after out AGM on Saturday, 14th February 2015.  Look out for details coming soon of next year’s programme.
