The public final for the Highland Young Musician of the Year 2015 will take places in the Maclean Room at Eden Court Theatre on Sunday 14th June at 7pm.
The Young Musician competition is now in its ninth year and is open to all those who are currently members of Highland Young Musicians groups.
The Young Musician entrants will have spent some time on the day before the competition rehearsing with the official accompanist, then one piece from each entrants programme will be presented to the guest judges during the afternoon of the competition day. The panel will then spend some time with each competitor chatting about their musical aspirations before the judges decide who will present their complete programmes in the public final which begins at 7pm.
“This competition provides an ideal opportunity for some of our most talented young musicians to compete at an extremely high level”’ said Norman Bolton, the Highland Council’s Music Development Officer. “Entrants this year cover a wide range of ages and instrumental disciplines. Although this is a competition, the atmosphere is positive and supportive and the determination to compete at this level is a credit to the dedication of all the entrants.”
