Entrants were asked to make sure

Entrants were asked to make sure they said at the beginning of the clip: Your name, Your Group, The Title of the Piece, The Composer.  Although on this occasion we didn’t ‘mark down’ anyone who didn’t do this, we would  strongly advise anyone in the future to read carefully what is expected for any exam or competition, and then to follow all the requirements.

The video clips were sent to each of the four assessors in the Music Team  Nick Parrans-Smith, Richard Jeffries, Matt Pope and Philip King).  Each  assessor listened to all the entrants and then wrote comments about each one.  In addition, they nominated which they thought should qualify for an  award.   This information was then shared at a meeting where the final decisions were made.  Where an assessor’s family member had entered a category, that assessor was not involved in any decision-making for that particular group.

The Summer Music Competition has been funded through the generosity of The Duffield Award.
