Juniors at Galloway Music Festival – 6th March 2010

At the beginning of December the juniors entertained at the Wigtown pensioners’ Christmas dinner. The youngsters played a short programme with great enthusiasm and musicianship which was rapturously received by the large audience.

At the recent Galloway Music Festival there were more successes for the juniors.

Kyle Fitzsimmons was the best in grade 1 followed by Nathan Syed Tollan in second place and Annabeth Ward in third. Tess Syed Tollan was third in grade 2. Caitlin Kerr was first in grade 3 and shared the Coop Trophy with Kyle. John Birse was second in grade 5 and was the only brass player in the senior recital class where he gained a very creditable third place.

Unfortunately the junior group was unable to hold on to the trophy in the senior ensembles being pipped in a very close contest by a much improved wind group from the Douglas Ewart HS.
