Finalist in Woodard Young Musician of the Year


Our congratulations to Oliver Connell (front row, centre) who has won through to the last fifteen of the junior Woodard Young Musician of the Year competition. Coronavirus permitting, the Final will be held in Birmingham in the middle of May, or as soon afterwards as is reasonable. Oliver’s trumpet playing has been exceptional this year, and we are now hoping he can emulate the achievement of Prestfelde’s Protik Moulik, who won the competition in 2012.

Commiserations to Richard Wolskel, George Rink and Ben Farquharson, who didn’t quite make the cut, but Ben at least will have another chance in two years’ time.
