RIBI Young Musician
RIBI Young Musician
Music is the international language and Great Britain and Ireland is home to some of the most talented young instrumentalists and vocalists in the world. RIBI celebrates this talent with a sequence of competitions that offer thousands of young people the chance to demonstrate their musical skills whether classical or modern.
The RIBI Young Musician competition provides a stage for musical talent to shine in regional competitions before the grand final itself. Starting with club level competitions, winners progress to district events followed by regional contests with the hope of appearing at the national final.
On May 4th 2013 the RIBI Young Musician Final took place at Longfield Academy in Dartford, hosted by Rotary District 1120.
Connor Smith, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Currie Balerno, performed an outstanding rendition of Vaughn Williams and an aria from The Magic Flute to win the Vocalist Category.
Winner of the Instrumentalist Category was pianist Rosie Sutton, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Horsham, who wowed the judges with a piece by Debussy followed by a spirited rendering of a Toccata by Khachaturian.
Next year, it could be you.
This competition is open to young people who are aged under 18 on August 31st 2013 (please see competition guidelines for more details). Competitions are run by local Rotary clubs, who will host regional competitions before winners advance to the district and then national events. To get involved, contact your local Rotary club and ask them for details.
Full rules are available below along with a poster to print off and promote the event in your area.
