Pianists, 8 year old Dee Dee Redford, 15 year old Henry Collard Jenkins and 18 year old Arjun Ashok, all Taunton Young Musician finalists, performed to a large and very appreciative audience in St Michael’s church, Milverton , on Friday 2 September.
These young musicians all showed such skill, maturity and professionalism in their playing, their choice of programme and their approach, so much so that the response from the audience via e mails and letters since the concert has been incredible!
Milverton Concert Society have been presenting top quality professional concerts for over 30 years and giving young musicians the opportunity to hone their performing skills has always been a very important part in the programming of concerts.
The Taunton Young Musician competitions are held in Taunton annually, giving young performers the opportunity to select a short programme of contrasting pieces to perform in front of an audience and an adjudicator who gives invaluable advice on performance techniques, stagecraft and general musicianship.
Next year’s competitions will be held at King’s College Chapel, Taunton on 12 March 2023.
