Music Competitions

Instrumental and singing competitions for young musicians living or studying in the North Herts and Stevenage area.


This annual event (regrettably not held in 2021 due to Covid) comprises two separate competitions organised by the club, and is open to young instrumental and vocal students (Year 12 or equivalent) who live or attend school in the North Herts and Stevenage areas.


The Peter Lambourne Music Bursary for instrumentalists is sponsored by Penny Brook in memory of her late husband, a past member of Hitchin Priory Rotary Club. 


The Sue Cracknell Singing competition is sponsored by Richard Cracknell of Hitchin Rotary Club to commemorate the work undertaken by his late wife, who was a well-known singer, teacher and performer in the Hitchin area. 


The 2022 Competition Concert took place on Wednesday 6 July.  Click  here for details of the Competitions and videos of the performances.
