AKS Musician Progresses to National Finals
Jenny Lucking and Annabelle Li Kam Wa, students at AKS Lytham Independent School, both performed a recital programme at the Regional Final of the Rotary Young Musician of the Year competition, held at Liverpool Cathedral earlier this month.
There were 10 instrumentalists and 10 singers in the Regional Final; all incredibly talented and performing pieces at a high level. The musicians represented well-known schools from North Wales, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester. The adjudicator, Sam Dunkley, made some lovely comments about all their performances.
AKS Lytham are delighted that Jenny was awarded first place and will now go through to the National Final, to be held at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff next month. This is a significant achievement, given the level of competition. It was certainly a proud moment for AKS Lytham and we will all be making plans to travel to Cardiff to support Jenny in the national final round.
