Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

AMAZ­ING Grace Scott-Deucher, from High­worth Girls Gram­mar School in Ash­ford, has won the Kent Young Mu­si­cian of the Year ti­tle. The com­pe­ti­tion fi­nal to find the most tal­ented mu­si­cal per­former was held in Maid­stone af­ter au­di­tions to se­lect eight re­gional fi­nal­ists. The 13-year-old oboist who played mu­sic by Mar­cello and Saint Saens in her fi­nal per­for­mance was sur­prised and de­lighted with the vic­tory. School head of mu­sic Julie Moore said that Year 8 stu­dent Grace had al­ready passed her grade eight oboe ex­am­i­na­tion with dis­tinc­tion. She said: “Grace is an ex­cel­lent per­former and I am very pleased that she has gained recog­ni­tion for her tal­ent.” The teenager also plays in many en­sem­bles and re­cently took part in Mu­sic for Youth, play­ing a se­lec­tion of recorders.
