Young Musician Competition
Alcester Singers Young Musician Competition was started by Malcolm Brinson over 20 years ago during his time as our musical director.
It is open to all young musicians living or attending a school within a 10-mile radius of Alcester and who are between the age of 11 and 18. Competitors must have achieved Grade 5 or above and previous winners cannot enter.
The current prize is £150 and the winner will also receive the Malcolm Brinson Trophy which they can keep for 1 year. The winner will also be offered the opportunity to perform at one of our concerts during the year.
Many of our previous winners have gone on to pursue prestigious musical careers. Our 2013 winner, Florence Cain, won BBC Radio 2 young chorister of the year 2016
The competition is sponsored by The Howarth Memorial Trust and Alcester Town Council
Unfortunately the 2016 competition had to be cancelled due to insufficient entries.
Full details of how to enter are included on the information sheet below.
