Gregynog Young Musician Competition
The Gregynog Young Musician Competition was founded in 2005 and has become one of the most prestigious events of its kind. The competition is held annually at the highly acclaimed Gregynog Hall, which has a long history of association with music and the arts.
Entrants must be aged 18 years and under and have reached Grade 8 standard or equivalent, on any orchestral instrument, brass band instrument or percussion.
The Competition 2020
The 2020 competition has been a little different and whilst we were sad to not be able to meet in person we were incredibly proud to be able to continue the competition this year, made possible by the continued generosity of our sponsor: Mr Hywel Lloyd of Lloyds Animal Feeds. The quality of the competition was certainly of the very highest level. We are thrilled to be able to award the Peter Garbett-Edwards trophy to an extraordinary young musician: someone we suspect you may see much more of in the years to come. We sincerely hope to see you in more normal circumstances next year.
Next competition date: April 2021
