George is Maidstone Young Musician of the Year!

Following the success of Anna Crawford in last week's Medway Young Musician of the Year, George Harrington has won the Maidstone Young Musician of the Year which took place in the Hazlett Theatre last Wednesday. 

Amelia Chambers also performed in the competition and sang songs by Grieg and Quilter and, judging by the awed hush, clearly impressed the audience during the first half of the competition. George reprised his Gregson Tuba Concerto and his performance of Fnugg caught everyone's imagination with the amazing variety of sounds required to perform it. He was awarded first place and thoroughly deserved it after his valiant efforts in the Medway and Canterbury competitions!
