District Young Musician Final 2019
On March 3rd the 1040 District Final of this Rotary competition took place at the NCEM York, in front of a packed audience including several Club members.
Jo Peach (a "Friend of York Rotary") was one of the adjudicators who had the unenviable job of deciding the winners from the 14 extremely talented young people who took part, chosen by various Rotary Clubs in the District. It was a very entertaining afternoon, and congratulations are due to all the competitors. In the end the winner in the Instrumental category was violinist WIlliam Clark, a prodigious talent who is from York (Huntington School); with Xiana Harron (Halia close second. Eva Scullion (Ripon) won the vocalist category with Kyai Calver (Brigg) runner up. These four, and also a brilliant Alto Saxophonist James Taylor (Brigg) will go forward to the Regional Final at the end of March.
