Festival of Chamber Music

Trinity Hall played host to an evening of mesmerising music last night as Senior Years pupils performed in the School’s annual Festival of Chamber Music. 

Festival of Chamber Music

The Festival incorporates the Southgate and Dvořák Prizes for chamber ensembles of between 3 and 6 players, involving pupils up to F6 (Southgate) and F4 (Dvořák).

A record 41 pupils took part, from F1 through to F6, entertaining the audience of parents with a set of fantastic performances which were adjudicated by Gillian Craig, Music Consultant to the University of St Andrews, and former Director of Music there.

The winners of the Southgate prize were Jessica Chen (violin), Kirsty Elgin (violoncello) and Naomi Sibson (piano), while the winners of the Dvořák Prize were guitarists Angus Ledlie, Alexander Milnes and Christopher Scott.

Director of Music, Lionel Steuart Fothringham, said “The overall standard was very high; it is very heartening to see the enthusiasm that our young musicians have for forming their own ensembles, and the enjoyment they get from making music together with friends from several year groups.”
