Rotary Young Musician District 1190 Final 2020

Sun 9th February 2020 at 09.00 - 16.00

Rotary Young Musician District 1190 Final 2020

Despite the poor weather conditions (gale-force winds and rain – causing flooding) musicians and their families, accompanists, teachers, Rotarians and Adjudicators all arrived at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Penrith safely to attend the D1190 Young Musician Final. The standard of performances was once again very high and every single competitor gave an outstanding performance.  The Adjudicators (Mr Daniel Roberts, Head of Music at QEG’s Penrith and Ian Butterworth, musician and leader of Penrith Town Band and Eden Swing Band) had a very difficult job of deciding who would be winners for the 2 categories.  They gave excellent written feedback to each competitor, so that they can learn from the valuable experience and be proud of their achievements.

A total of six instrumentalists and five vocalists aged 11-18 took part and the results were as follows:

Instrumental Winner

Dev Cooney – piano – AKS, Lytham – sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Kirkham & Rural Fylde

Instrumental Runner-Up (who will represent D1190 at the Regional Final if the Winner is unable to attend)
