The 2013 Rotary Young Musician Competition is due to be held once again in Ellon Parish Church on January, 12 2013 at 7pm.
In conjunction with Mr David Birse, Head of Music at Ellon Academy, Ellon Rotary is organising and sponsoring this successful annual competition. It is hoped it will attract and encourage young musicians up to age 17 as of August 31 and who live in Ellon or the immediate area.
There are two categories: solo instrumental and solo vocal. The first local round will be held in Ellon, the time and venue as stated above. The winner in each category will go forward to the District final which will probably be held again in Perth in early March 2013. This will be followed by Regional finals later in March/early April, with the National final being held in Longfield Academy, Longfield, Kent, on May 4.
The winners in each final will receive a trophy and a prize in the National final.
Entry forms and more details are available from Mr David Birse of Ellon Academy Music Department or from Ian MacKay of Ellon Rotary on 01358 723095.
