Gareth said “It is truly rewarding to see how much musical talent exists amongst our young people and each year since the competition started the technical standard and musical ability of the competitors has gone from strength to strength. Many of the previous winners have gone on to be professional musicians performing at the highest possible level.
I very much look forward to this year’s entrants and enjoying the undoubted high standard of performance the competitors will give and would be delighted to see anyone who wishes to share that enjoyment join us at the finals of the competition.”
