Stamford Music Competition Festival 2017

2017
I would like to thank the Stamford businesses and charities that supported this event, and helped us put on such a good show. We had such a strong response that we had to close the booking before the deadline for entries. I am sorry that some people missed out, and of course, others may not have known about it in time. I hope that they will book early for next year’s event.

Stamford Music Competition Festival 2016

The 2016 Stamford Music Competition took place at All Saints’ Church on Saturday, 11th June. There was a great response to the event. Seventy-five young performers came from as far afield as Boston and Huntingdon, as well as locally, to take part in seven classes throughout the day. There was a good atmosphere, and everyone played and sang well.

The Adjudicator was Steven Grahl, the Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral, who had the unenviable task of assessing all the performances and choosing a winner and runner-up at each level.
