On Wednesday afternoon we were delighted to welcome Director of Music, Dr Ryan Hepburn, to the Senior School Recital Hall to judge the finals of the Prep School Musician of the Year Competition 2019.
Following the competition heats which took place in February, twelve pupils from across Years 4 to 6 performed to a small audience of parents, as well as Ms Boyd and Mrs Woodcock. The standard was exceptionally high and each performance reflected the hard work and musical talent of the competitors.
Once all performances were complete, Dr Hepburn took some time to deliberate before announcing the recipients of three Highly Commended Certificates, as well as one overall winner, who not only took home the coveted Prep Musician of the Year Trophy but was also invited to perform in front of the whole Prep School at Prize Giving on Monday 1 July. Dr Hepburn took the time to provide personalised feedback to each finalist on the strengths and areas for future development.
Congratulations to all performers and especially to Noa for her winning performance! Thank you to Ms Duval for organising this event.
