Rotary Young Musician

Posted on: 14/12/2015

Congratulations to all students who participated in the local heat of the Rotary Club Young Musician Competition 2015.  Eleven pupils, who participated in the local round held at Great Torrington School on Tuesday 1st December, pushed their nerves aside to take part in the competition. This is the first year that Great Torrington School has participated in the competition and we are so pleased with the high standard of singing and playing. 

Judges: Rob Paynter from Share Music, and Zoe Cartlidge, professional musician, had their work cut out in determining the best vocalist and instrumentalist.  Their constructive comments to all of the participants will put them in good stead for future rounds or competitions and performances. 

We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Torrington for running such a wonderful event to showcase the talent and skills of the young people of GTS.

All performers certainly provided a very enjoyable evening. 

A special well done for winning this local round goes to Rees Parkhouse (Drumming instrumentalist) and Rose Mason (Vocalists) who now go on to the regional heat of the competition which will be held in Plymouth in the New Year.
