2021 Gregynog Young Musician Competition

We are thrilled to be making the preparations for the 2021 Gregynog Young Musician Competition on Saturday the 13th of November 2021. The heart of our competition is the opportunity that it offers to extraordinarily talented, aspiring young musicians: such opportunities, in short supply of late, are so important in the development of tomorrow’s professional musicians. All preparations are being put in place to make the 2021 competition the best yet. We are indebted to our sponsor, Mr Hywel Lloyd of Lloyds Animal feeds, for his continued support of the competition. We hope to see you, in person, on competition day in the beautiful surroundings of Gregynog Hall.
