Concerto Competition UpdateNick Van Breda
The results of this year’s Concerto Competition are in!
We were very fortunate to have Fiona Ziegler, Assistant Concertmaster of the SSO as our adjudicator this year. Fiona gave very encouraging and helpful feedback for each of our boys, stating:
I was so impressed by the standard of your students and the diligence and concentration of their presentation and performance. It was very hard to choose winners as each candidate performed so well and all deserve congratulations, especially in this difficult time of learning.
In our new INFANTS Section, she chose Lewis W. (Prep), who played the Seitz Violin Concerto, in 1st Place.
Whilst in the JUNIOR Section she chose Clancy L. (Junior School), who played Wieniawski Concerto No.2 3rd Movement, with a request for a special mention of Cayden T. (Prep) coming a very close 2nd, playing Vivaldi’s Spring, rewarding him with a Highly Commended.
In the INTERMEDIATE Section she awarded 1st Place to Andy L., playing the Lalo Cello Concerto, with and a highly commended to Luca F., playing Kabalevsky.
And in the SENIOR Section Joseph L. was the winner, playing Wieniawski Concerto No.2 1st Movement.
