On Saturday 2 February at Westmorland Primary School, BGS Year 12 students, Jay and Ethan competed in the North West District Round of the Rotary Club Young Musician of the Year.
There were other students present from schools across the North West representing a range of different voices and instruments.
Jay’s performance was the first of the day, in which he performed Alma Del Core by Antonio Caldara and Gethsemane from ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ by Andrew Lloyd Webber, demonstrating his impressive range and vocal acrobatics.
Ethan’s performance of Vielleicht Das Nachste Mal by Rainbow and Bourée in E Minor by Bach showed off his technical prowess and flair whilst also showing professional and contrasting performances throughout, despite technical difficulties.
Both students are pleased to reach the next round, which is the regional final held in Sandbach on the 23rd of March.
The boys would like to thank Mr Benger for his expert piano accompaniment and Mrs Rumboldt for supporting the event.
Good luck to both boys in the next round.
