Ja­cob hits right note at au­di­tion

Solihull News - - NEWS -

A GIFTED gui­tarist at The Sixth Form Col­lege, Soli­hull has been awarded a mu­sic bur­sary after au­di­tion­ing at a pub­lic con­cert.

Ja­cob Ful­ford, who is 18, won the £ 150 bur­sary from the Heart­field- Wharam Schol­ar­ship, to spend on mu­sic tuition.

He im­pressed the judges with his per­for­mance of Capri­cho Árabe by Fran­cisco Tár­rega.

Mu­sic teacher Chris Phelps said: “With ten stu­dents au­di­tion­ing, it was very dif­fi­cult for the judges to pick a winner. We felt that the stan­dard was very high and we con­grat­u­late the stu­dents for their per­for­mances.”

The next con­cert takes place at Christ­mas. Tick­ets are avail­able now for the free Christ­mas Con­cert on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 13, at 7pm by call­ing 0121 704 2581 or email­ing mar­ket­ing@ soli­hullsfc. ac. uk
