Mu­sic fes­ti­val’s 10th birth­day

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

This year is a spe­cial one for the Maid­stone Mu­sic Fes­ti­val as it cel­e­brates its 10th an­niver­sary.

It was founded by pro­fes­sional pi­ano teacher Sue Greenham.

This year’s two-day event has the usual for­mat of com­pe­ti­tion classes in pi­ano, singing, strings, wood­wind, brass and ac­cor­dion.

Each per­former is given a help­ful cri­tique by an ex­pe­ri­enced judge and the very best will be in­vited to take part in a high­lights con­cert for mem­bers of the pub­lic on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 3, at In­victa Gram­mar School in Hunts­man Lane, Maid­stone.

In ad­di­tion, this year, for the first time, the fes­ti­val is be­ing used as the only route for young per­form­ers to gain en­try into the Maid­stone Young Mu­si­cian com­pe­ti­tion, run by the Ro­tary Dawn Pa­trol, in Jan­uary.

Ad­ju­di­ca­tors will be look­ing out for suitable con­tes­tants, who will then be rec­om­mended for in­clu­sion in the con­test.
