Bramwell Tovey Prize:
We are pleased to announce a new annual competition for promising and talented young musicians "Sandbach Concert Series Young Musician of the Year". The Finals will be held on 18th April 2015 at Sandbach Town Hall during the Sandbach Transport Festival, with prizes awarded by Sandbach Mayor Elsie Alcock.
Sandbach Concert Series has run four successful series and brings national and internationally known musical artists to play to appreciative audiences in Sandbach. Each concert features a Spotlight where the young people of Sandbach and the local area also play and we are constantly impressed with the talent all around us.
To honour our talented youth and to celebrate our fifth series, we are delighted to announce our first Sandbach Concert Series Young Musician of the Year competition. The competition will be held in April 2015 and is open to individual performers aged 19 and under who have performed at one of the Sandbach Concert Series Spotlight concerts during the previous calendar year.
Prizes of music bursaries will be awarded to the winners of each age group with trophies for the outright winners. All participants will receive an award for taking part. There will be a Senior section for secondary school age and a Junior section for the primary school age. There will be a maximum of 16 entrants chosen by the Concert artists and/or the Musical Director and Committee during the spotlight concerts throughout the year. The successful entrants will be notified early in 2015 to enable them to prepare for the competition. Entrants will be considered from the Spotlight concerts from February 2014 through to November 2014.
The day of the event will be on a Saturday during the Sandbach Transport Festival and likely to be held at the Town Hall. It is intended to be a fun day open to the public topped with a short Ensemble performance whilst the independent judges make their decision. Winners will be announced at the end of the day and prizes will be given.
The Sandbach Concert Series is a non-profit making organisation of volunteers committed to bringing quality music at an accessible time to Sandbach. We are grateful to our sponsors, our volunteers, and especially to our dedicated audiences who are part of our very special community initiative.
