Thursday 28 November 2013

Shropshire Concerto Competition semi-finalists: Harry Sargeant, Awen Blandford and Henry NewbouldThree of our musicians have got through to the semi-finals of the Shropshire Concerto Competition: Harry Sargeant (M UVI - trumpet), Awen Blandford (EDH UVI - cello) and Henry Newbould (Ch V - saxophone) - pictured left to right.

They continue the School's strong tradition in this annual competition, which is organised by the Shropshire Music Service. In 2011 the competition was won by the then Fourth Former Galin Ganchev (M LVI); and Dorit Hasselberg won it last year, when three of the four finalists were from Shrewsbury.

This year's semi-final will be held at Concord College on Wednesday 15th January 2014 and the final will take place in the Alington Hall, Shrewsbury School in March.
