Galin wins Shropshire Young Musician of the Year competition

Thursday 5 April 2012

Salopian pupils took two of the four places in the finals of the 2012 Shropshire Young Musician of the Year competition: Dorit Hasselberg (EDH LVI) and Galin Ganchev (M IV).

Performing infront of a sell-out audience at Theatre Severn's Walker Theatre in the first week of the school holidays, the finalists were accompanied by the Shropshire Sinfonia conducted by Robert Wysome.

Dorit was the first of the finalists to perform, playing Weber's Clarinet Concerto, and played superbly (as can be heard on the link below).  However, Galin's performance of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor was judged by Chris Hoyle to be the best.

Highlights from the concert were broadcast on Radio Shropshire on 4th April, which can be heard on BBC iPlayer:
