The Competition will be on Saturday 8th June (and booking closes on 20th May). Now in its fourth year, the competition is for children in Years 1-8, and is divided into classes by grade. In most classes children simply play or sing a grade piece. There is also a class for the clever clogs who play more than one instrument, and a new one for families. I am delighted that the ABRSM examiner Stephen Bullamore, from Newark Parish Church, has accepted my invitation to adjudicate.
Visit website and make entry
The competition offers a friendly and welcoming environment for musicians to perform before their peers, their parents, teachers and the general public. There is no charge to listen as a member of the audience.
 
Every competitor will receive a Certificate, spoken adjudication and helpful, encouraging written notes on their performance. There are a number of trophies as well.

A Class for Families

In 2019 we introduce a new family class, two or more members of the same (extended) family playing and/or singing one piece together (e.g. siblings, Mum and/or Dad with child, grandparents, nephews and nieces, etc.). At least one of the performers must be in Years 1-8. Please enter Class 5.

Tuesdays till two

Tuesday, 9th April at 1pm
Now for a piece of special pleading: Kate Risdon and Fergus Black are giving a Tuesday lunchtime concert at St John's Peterborough next week, on 9th April at 1pm. Admission is free, but those who are able to afford it are asked to make a donation. The suggested amount is £5.

About the Programme:
"The concert features epic sonatas by Prokofiev and Taktakishvili. Let the composers be your guides on a lunchtime adventure as you experience first the atmosphere of wartime Russia and then an extravaganza of the best Georgian hospitality: a party with folksong and dancing in the middle of the working day.  No passport needed, just pack your imagination!"

About Kate Risdon:

Kate Risdon is flautist with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Resound Ensemble which performed at the BBC Proms in 2018 (in a concert broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall on BBC Radio 3). She performed as Concerto soloist with the Czech Virtuosi Orchestra in Prague in 2017. She has given solo and ensemble recitals in Peterborough, Stamford, London and Prague. She has worked with the British Paraorchestra, including with the Qatar Philharmonic in Doha and the South Bank Sinfonia for a new commission in 2015 in Colston Hall, Bristol. She teaches privately and for the Peterborough Centre for Young Musicians and as a peripatetic music teacher in schools.
