GIBRALTAR FESTIVAL FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS
22nd February – 26th February 2021
Open to all musicians between the ages of 4 and 18 years of age.
The annual ‘Gibraltar Festival for Young Musicians’ will be taking place from 22nd February – 26th February 2021. If you play an instrument or enjoy singing, then come along and participate at this festival. The categories of classes include piano, brass, woodwind, percussion, vocal and strings. This year we are introducing a new “Pop and Rock” category. There are competitive sections in every category where trophies and medals can be won. Classes will be divided into Infant, Junior, Intermediate and Senior categories and you can enter solos, duets, ensembles, or choirs.
The festival aims to provide a friendly environment where young people can perform. An experienced UK music adjudicator, from the British and International Federation of Festivals, will provide positive and impartial feedback to all performers, at the adjudication weekend, helping to nurture and develop the children’s talents and will be awarding certificates, medals and trophies. The adjudicator will invite 6 local performers and 6 international performers to perform and compete for the Local Young Musician of the Year and Best International Musician Bursaries on the Gala Night. The Local Ensemble and Local School Choir Bursaries will also be decided on the final night as the top ensembles and school choirs will be invited to perform. Even if you are not invited to perform and compete for the Local Young Musician of the Year or Best International Musician, you may already be a winner of one of the other bursaries or trophies
