Bethany sang very well at the final, which was held in Perth earlier this month, but Andrew’s classical performance, which he played from memory, was outstanding and led to a win in the Instrumental section against strong fellow competitors.

Andrew now qualifies for the Regional final which will also be held in Perth next Sunday (March 18).
