SCD student Alex Pullen named Young Musician of The Year 2017

On Saturday 24th June 2017, Bucks Learning Trust Music held its first Young Musician of the Year Competition in the beautiful surroundings of Stowe School.

Over 30 talented musicians applied for a place in the Grand Final with the final 6 successfully making it through to perform to a live audience and a panel of judges, which consisted of Clive Fairbairn from the New Mozarrt Orchestra, Aileen Douthwaite, a freelance Music Consultant and Nick Smart, Head of Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music. The quality of the performances was extremely high and St Clement Danes student Alex Pullen performed so well that he won 1st Prize for playing the Marimba.

On winning 1st place, Alex was awarded a cash prize, a music voucher and  the opportunity to perform with the Bucks County Youth Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall in June 2018.

Congratulations to Alex on this fantastic achievement. We wish him every success in his future competitions, including his entry to the International Youth Percussion Competition, which will be  held in Belgium later this month.
