The end of the year saw two of our up-and-coming junior musicians achieve on the National stage.
Dylan Connolly, the 2022 Junior Cultural Performer of the Year, was awarded 2nd place in the Youth Division of the biennial National Classical Guitar Competition held in Wellington over the weekend of December 3rd and 4th. Dylan was selected as one of the four finalists from the 15 competitors that performed on Saturday.
Matthew Colvin, the Junior Captain of Music, was accepted into the New Zealand Secondary Schools Symphony Orchestra last weekend as one of only four clarinetists. This is an exceptional achievement for a junior student.
Congratulations to these two talented musicians on these achievements. Tino pai!
