Glenalmond musicians have had magnificent success in the recent Perform in Perth Music Festival with an overall win and an impressive line-up of six out of the seven finalists. The Premier Prize was awarded to Alexander W (piano) by adjudicator Liz Childs for his superb performance of Beethoven’s Andante Favori.
The final was held on Saturday 18 March and the large number of entries from Glenalmond is a remarkable achievement given that the competition is open to all, with no age or geographical limitation.
Conrad, Alexander W, Angus, Alex M and Ellie (twice) were all invited to compete in the Premier Prize Competition to find the outstanding instrumentalist of the entire festival.
