Tormead Instrumental Festival

Tormead’s first ever Instrumental Festival was held on Thursday 9 February. A little different to a regular soloist evening, a festival is a competition with an adjudicator who judges the performances and provides feedback to all the performers. We welcomed pianist and educator, Mr Chris Atkinson, to adjudicate our performers and what a tough job he had! Both our intermediate and senior categories were packed with superb performances on a variety of instruments. We congratulate our winners and those pupils whose performances were highly commended, detailed below. Congratulations and thanks must go to all our performers for their professionalism, musicality and hard work. Well done!
