A Message from the Chairman

Dear Performers, Teachers, Parents and Friends
The 2015 Festival came to a glorious end at the final gala concert held at The Kings Theatre celebrating the wealth of talent in the area.
The evening opened with Bosmere Junior School Choir singing Rodgers & Hammersteins' Do Re Mi. They were followed by a selection of brilliant performances representing the various sections of the festival.
At the event two prestigious awards were made. Zoe Barnett gave a brilliant performance of Prelude No 1 by Villa Lobos for which she was awarded The Portsmouth Festivities Recital Prize. She will be giving a recital as part of the Portsmouth Festivities in 2016.
Phoebe Paxton so impressed the judges with her performance of the Flute Concerto in D (3rd mvt) by Reinecke that she was awarded the Solent Symphony Orchestra's Concerto Award.
Amongst the other performers the seven year olds Louie Wu and Mia Drover showed such musical talent at such a young age they were handed the Chairman's Cup.
The concert concluded with a Grand Finale led by Bosmere Junior School Choir and Romsey Youth Choir.
