Alnwick Rotary hosted the Young Musician District Final 2017/18 at The Duchess's Community High School.

A fabulous musical experience at the Young Musician District Final 2017/18 hosted by Alnwick Rotary. Our Judges were Fiona Lander of Landermason, John Casken (composer) and Elizabeth Eaton (musician and competition administrator).  We were extremely lucky to have such talented Judges, (and I know the other Judges won't mind) especially John Casken.

The winners of the competition are:

Ruby Falke (Vocal winner) Alnwick

Palesa Thompson (Vocal Runner-up) Alnwick

Christopher Winkless-Clark (Instrumental winner French Horn) Chester-le-Street

George Robinson (Instrumental Runner up Violin) Barnard Castle.

Huge thanks go to the School Staff and Caretaker, Head Teacher Mr. Hall for allowing us to use the auditorium, all Rotary volunteers, Jacqui Molyneux for presenting the prizes and of course all 3 Judges who were so generous with their time and encouraging in their comments.
