Rickmansworth Young Musician of the Year 2017 competition


A Feast of Music Making

If you enjoy music then put 7pm Saturday 1st July at the Baptist Church, Rickmansworth in your diary as a “must”.  You will find yourself amply rewarded as you listen to 8 young people, aged between 12 and 17, playing at a quite incredible level of expertise, compete for the title of “Rickmansworth Young Musician of the Year”.

Participants from this competition, now in its 34th year, have gone on to win many other musical awards including the BBC Young Musician of the Year.  Previous competitors are now to be found playing in, or with internationally renowned orchestras, in chamber groups and as recitalists.

In previous years the selection of instruments played has been broad, ranging over the more frequent violin or piano, to the saxophone, guitar, harp, cello, clarinet, flute and organ.  This year, after the preliminary round that was held on 16th May, the adjudicators decided on the following 8 finalists.  We have 4 pianists, 1 violinist, 2 singers and a Marimbist – a percussion instrument akin to a xylophone.

Our finalists are:
Rhys Evans (violin);
Tamara Redmond (piano);
Adelaide Harliono (voice)
Zacharias Brandman (piano)
Alexander Pullen (Marimba) (St Clement Danes School)
George Harliono (piano)
Isabella Flynn (piano) (Royal Masonic)
Alex Blinko (voice) (Purcell School)

This year’s Final is now pointed to be a feast of music making, powered with youthful exuberance by 8 remarkably talented young people who will, as witnessed already, display an astounding maturity of approach.  The adjudicators, who have national and international reputations as music teachers, moderators and examiners, are not likely to find it easy to allocate the positions of the various prize winners.  You might like to come and anticipate their decisions!

Payment on admission of £13 and £5 for those under 19.

Symphonia Academica

Symphonia Academica

Symphonia Academica aims to create exciting concerts and exhilarating educational projects, bringing together a dynamic group of musicians from many areas of the professional classical music world. With this ensemble, you won’t find a constant churning out of repeated ideas, but more innovative offerings of a unique and fulfilling nature – for the audience and performer alike.

It takes a special kind of project to bring them together.  Take for example Mahler’s 4th Symphony, condensed for soprano and 12 players. A rare treat to play and hear and a stunning way to bring one of the greatest symphonies – by one of the greatest composers – into your town.

The key people behind this ambitious and exciting organisation are -

David Beaman

Conductor David Beaman was appointed principal conductor of Symphonia Academica in 2003.
