Community, What's On
The search has begun to find Northern Ireland’s next Young Musician of the Year. The competition is open to instrumentalists aged over 11 and under 18 on 1/7/13, and singers aged over 11 and under 19 on 1/7/13. Entry forms and rules have been sent via Education Board Music Directors to all post-primary schools in their Board areas and to Schools of Music. They can also be downloaded from www.comberrotary.org/documents/EntryForm2013.pdf. Applications should be received by the organisers by 31st January 2013. Those performers judged to be best by the heat adjudicator on 2nd March will progress to the final in the Harty Room at Queen’s University, Belfast, on 9th March. The competition, now in its 21st year, attracts young vocalists and instrumentalists across a wide range of disciplines and talents, including among the winners flautists, pianists, percussionists, singers, violinists, cellists, a guitarist and a euphonium player. Many consider the Northern Ireland Young Musician of the Year to be the first major step on the road to a professional music career. Launching this year’s event President of Comber Rotary Club Jim Torney said: ”As well as providing a valuable platform for young musicians to gain valuable competition experience, this well-established contest is an opportunity for the Rotary Club of Comber to raise badly needed funds for two deserving young people’s charities. “We hope that in 2013 it will attract a large number of keen young competitors.”
