Young Musician District Final 2019
Chesham Rotary Candidate, Greg Bealing, Wins the District Final
The final of our District Young Musician took place at Dr. Challoner’s High School in Little Chalfont.

Greg Bealing sponsored by Chesham playing the violin won the instrumentalist section and Lucy Howitt sponsored by Amersham playing the harp was adjudged runner-up. Eve Charnley sponsored by Luton Someries won the vocalist section,
Music is the international language and Great Britain and Ireland is home to some of the most talented young instrumentalists and vocalists in the world. We celebrate this talent with a sequence of competitions that offer thousands of young people the chance to demonstrate their musical skills whether classical or modern.
The Rotary Young Musician competition provides a stage for musical talent to shine in regional competitions before the grand final itself. Starting with club level competitions, winners progress to district events followed by regional contests with the hope of appearing at the national final. This four stage national competition aims to encourage development of musical talent and offers young people;
Experience of performing on a public stage
Opportunity to showcase their musical talent
Impartial feedback of performance by experienced adjudicators.
