This event is sponsored by Ashbourne Rotary Club.
For many years, Rotary have organised a Young Musician competition and once again this year we are delighted to include this as part of the Ashbourne Festival.
The competition aims to offer young people:
• An experience of performing on a public stage
• An opportunity to showcase their musical talent
• An impartial assessment of performance by experienced adjudicators
There is a wealth of young talent in and around the Ashbourne area, so we are hoping for a huge response. The competition will take place on Saturday 24 June at the Ashbourne Methodist Church.
There will be 4 classes:
Solo Instrumental 8 – 12 years and 13 – 17 years
Vocal 8 – 12 years and 13 – 17 years
Class winners will receive £40, and the overall winner £50. In addition, winners may be invited to perform at the Rotary district competition in Derby later this year.
To enter, you must complete an entry form and return it to the Festival Office or Fidler Taylor, Church Street, no later than Saturday 10 June 2017.
