Shrewsbury School

Gregynog Young Musician of the Year Competition

Wednesday 4 March 2015

Two Shrewsbury pupils have been selected by competitive audition to play in the semi-finals day of the Gregynog Young Musican of the Year Competition in April this year.

Henry Newbould (saxophone) and Henry Thomas (trumpet) - both Lower Sixth Formers in Churchill's - submitted audition CDs for the first round and were chosen from nearly 40 entrants from all over the United Kingdom, including many from specialist music schools.

This is now one of the UK’s premiere music competitions for young musicians, and both pupils have done extremely well to get this far. The semi-final and final day takes place on Saturday April 18th at Gregynog Hall, Newtown, Mid-Wales. Audience members are most welcome, and the competition begins at 10.00am, continuing throughout the day, and culminating in the finals in the evening.
