2015 European Musical Competition – Report by PCC Bryan Riley
This year the instrument is the clarinet. We are very grateful for the continued sponsorship of our Insurance Brokers, Miles Smith PLC.
The MD105 final was held on 12 April 2015 at the Birmingham Conservatoire. Despite the fact that there were only 5 competitors the standard as stated by our 3 eminent judges was very high indeed. The judges themselves are all clarinettists, Andrew Penny, Conductor of the Hull Philharmonic, John Bradbury now Principal Clarinet with the BBC Philharmonic and Colin Bradbury, who was principal clarinet of the BBC Symphony Orchestra for over thirty years,
These young people are very talented and it is a credit to our Multiple District that we continue to help them enhance their chosen careers in music. There was a wide variation of the clarinettists’ choice of music which made for an interesting and stimulating competition. The age groups of the musicians spanned 9 years from 14 to 22.
The results and prizes were
1st Rachel Coe sponsored by South Wolds Lions (District 105C) – £500.00
2nd Elliott Gresty sponsored by Birchwood Lions (District 105BN) – £200.00
3rd Luke English sponsored by Birmingham Chinatown Lions (District 105M) – £100.00
4th equal Emily Hart sponsored by Caterham Oxted and Godstone Lions (District 105SE)
and Latchen Kinghorn-Perry sponsored by Vale Royal Lions (District 105BS)
I was delighted that Council Chairman Michael Phillips and District Governor Barry Collins were able to attend. CC Michael presented the prizes and representatives from each Club presented the five Certificates of Appreciation
Rachel Coe will now represent MD105 at the European Musical Competition final in Augsburg, Germany from 7-11 October 2015. In this final there are usually 20 contestants. This competition is the spring board to launch the music career of each contestant.
The instrument for 2016 is the violin and the European final will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria.
