Calling all musicians in Years 12 & 13

Do you want the chance for your music to earn you £400?

Then you might want to know that on Saturday 7th. April 2018  a music competition will be held at The Strutts Centre, in Belper.

There will be a prize of £400 for the winning student, a prize of £150 for the student in second place, and a third prize of £75.

The competition is sponsored by the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir.

Competition details

The award is open for competition to all students resident and/ or educated in Derbyshire who are in year 12 or 13 and it is expected that applicants will be at the standard of Grade 7 or above on their chosen instrument.
