Performing in public is a crucial element for a young musician’s development, as they leave the solitude of a practise room for a stage. Music competitions and concerts give the young performer a goal to work towards and a space to conquer difficulties and gain confidence. Thank you to all the sponsors and organisers for providing this vital platform. These concerts have all been broadcast on FMR and we are delighted to now share them as a podcast. Congratulations to all the young musicians.
