Search for young musician of the year in Darwen
2:38pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Darwen
THE search for the Young Musician of the Year will begin in Darwen in November.
Blackburn and Darwen Rotary clubs have organised the preliminary local round of the national event, which will take place in the town on Saturday, November 9.
The event will be held at Darwen Vale High School in Blackburn Road.
Rotary International sponsors the event each year and local clubs help with the early rounds.
Preliminary winners in two sections – instrumental and vocal – progress through district and regional events, many of them sup- ported financially by their area clubs.
John Jacklin, co-ordinator of the Darwen event, said: “It is a very prestigious competition and Rotary are very pleased to be supporting it again.
“It gives young musicians a real challenge and helps to progress their ambitions.”
Winners of each category in the preliminary round receive £100.
There are £50 prizes for each runner-up and £25 for those finishing third.
The competition is open to 11 to 17-year-olds and all entrants for the Darwen Vale event have to be from the BB postcode area and should be at Grade Seven or above.
For information, call Mr Jacklin on 01254 771367 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
