Win for Bancroftian Musician
Congratulations to one of our Music Scholars Rebecca Leung (U6E) who won the Windsor and Maidenhead Symphony Orchestra's Young Musicians' competition on October 9.
The WMSO Young Musicians’ Competition takes place every October; it is open to young musicians resident in the UK who have reached Grade 8 standard or higher and are aged 19 years or under and consistently attracts competitors of a very high musical standard. Competitors are required to perform a twelve minute programme consisting of one work or two short works before a panel of three adjudicators. As this year’s winner, Rebecca will play a piano concerto with the Windsor and Maidenhead Symphony Orchestra in 2017.
Rebecca is also currently a pupil at the Royal Academy of Music’s Junior Department.
