What another amazing day for all our performers at the festival. Today it was the turn of our woodwind and string pupils. Grace Martin was the first to perform in the under 11 woodwind class and did an amazing performance that secured her 1st place! In a very competitive under 12-14 class, we were delighted that Abi Caldwell was awarded 3rd place. Taylor Carmichael gave a stunning performance in the 15-16 woodwind class and was awarded a well-deserved 1st place. Hannah Caldwell competed in a challenging under 17-18 class and we were thrilled that she gained 2nd place.
In the woodwind ensemble class, the flute ensemble was award 1st place with the clarinet ensemble coming in a close 2nd.
In the String classes we were very proud of both Lois Bell and Sarah Dalzell who came joint 3rd in a very competitive class. In the 15-16 class we were delighted to have 3 wonderful performances with Joel Porter taking 1st place, Lewis Clark 2nd and Ruby Cartwright 3rd!
In the String ensemble class, the senior and junior string ensembles gave great performances and were places 2nd and 3rd retrospectively.
The day finished on a tremendous high with our school orchestra winning not only the orchestra class but also the best overall instrumental performance of the day, which was a massive achievement.
Again, we are so proud of all the pupils who have taken part and thank you so much for all your effort, hard work, and commitment that has made all this possible!
