Sat 17th March 2018:   YOUNG MUSICIANS' SHOWCASE

This is an opportunity to listen to some of the best young musical talent in the district. The Young Musicians' Showcase was established in 1941 to give musicians up to the age of 18 the opportunity of a public platform for their performances. Players appear as soloists, in duet, or in larger ensembles. Several of the young people featured in previous years have gone on to make a name for themselves in the professional world: examples include Alexis White, Pavlos Carvalho, Russell Hepplewhite and Caroline Tyler. (And one of the players in the original concert is now on the Music Society committee!)

Application forms for prospective performers will be available from the end of October 2017, at Music Society concerts, from Carousel Music, or by telephoning either the Organiser, Caroline Furnell on 01444 482646, or Christine Colbourne on 01444 456227; alternatively they can be downloaded from here. Auditions for the concert will be held at St Wilfrid's Church on Wed 21st Feb 2018, from 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm. Note that the starting time for this concert is 2.30 pm on Sat 17th March 2018 at St Wilfrid's.

We are pleased to announce that this year the YMS concert is to be sponsored by Ardingly College; for further information, visit www.ardingly.com.
