The Berkshire Young Musician competition is back for 2023 and this year it was open to all young string players across Berkshire.
We started the competition with over 120 entries from students playing Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass and Harp. The semi-final will see the successful 43 students perform and 3 from each age category will be taken through to the final at the Old Court in Windsor on Sunday 12th March. Here, we will find out who will be taking the title of the ‘Berkshire Young Musician of the Year 2023’. There will also be a winner from each age category plus a ‘Judges Highly Commended’ winner.
Every year this competition sees incredibly talented young musicians perform at their highest standard, giving them an opportunity to gain feedback from panels of experienced musicians, win prizes and not to mention the chance to perform as a soloist to an audience in the semi-final and final.
