Do not forget to tune into BBC Four on Sunday 24th May at 7pm to see Old Dane Alex Pullen perform in the percussion category finals of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition 2020!
Congratulations to Alex, who was selected as a category finalist in the final 25 young musicians of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition 2020. After taking his GCSE examinations at St Clement Danes School, seventeen year old Alex won the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Scholarship to attend Eton College, where he joined as a Year 12 student in September 2019. Alex’s passion for music began at the age of five when he started to play drums. He then went on to play the piano, guitar, and violin at the age of seven years old.
The competition’s next round will result in three of the young musicians being selected to perform a concerto with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. This performance was filmed for broadcast on BBC television on Sunday 24th May at 7pm. At the end of the evening a winner is chosen by a distinguished panel of judges. A link to the programme will also be available here from Monday 25th May 2020.
Good luck Alex!
