Young Musician

The Rotary Young Musician competition is held every year, beginning at Club level and progressing to District, Regional, and a National Final

There is a good following for the Young Musician Competition in District 1040 and we welcome new additions from Clubs not already involved.

The competition provides an excellent opportunity for Young Musicians to participate in a valuable experience to perform as a soloist in either the instrumental or vocal sections.

The competition is open to all competitors who are 17 or under on 31st of August each year.

When required, a piano will be provided for an accompanist.

In each competition the competitors are given constructive criticism and assessment of their performances by experienced adjudicators.

Performers can play from memory or from music at any stage.

Notable dates for this year’s competition are Sunday, 1st March 2020 from 12 noon when the District Final will be held at the National Centre for Early Music at St Margarets Church, Percy's Lane, York YO1 9TL which will be followed by a Regional Final on Sunday 15th March 2020 from 12 noon at the Woodhouse Grove School, Apperley Bridge, Bradford.
