On January 22nd, Towcester Town Hall was filled with many local, talented students who competed to win the Trophies of Young Musician – Soloist, Ensemble or Group.

The Rotary Club of Towcester was delighted to welcome Adjudicators Lincoln Noel and Heidi Carascon – who were amazed by the standard of both instrumental and vocal talent displayed on the day – and they both thoroughly enjoyed watching, advising and finally selecting the winners – who will now go through to the Rotary District Final of the Young Musician Competition in March 2017.

The winners were:

Emily Ramplin from Towcester Primary School who took the Soloist Trophy after her beautiful voice enchanted the audience singing Castle on a Cloud and the Zip a dee doh dah.

Nicholas Hawksmoor Quintet took the Ensemble Trophy with an unusual but lovely rendition of Yellow Submarine and Yesterday by the Beatles.

Finally, the Group trophy was won by Silverstone Primary School Choir whose enthusiasm and passion for the songs they sung: Wild Mountain Thyme and The Wreck of John B left the audience and the judges delighted.

Although the other students may not have won a trophy, they all did remarkably well and provided a glimpse of the musical talent that will be coming to the fore in the coming years.

As a Rotary Club, the Towcester Rotarians are thrilled to be able to stage such an event- not only to showcase talent, but also to offer the opportunity for young students to learn new life skills and experience performing in front of a live audience.
