Gifted University of Chichester music students are to compete once again for the coveted Robert Headley Annual Music Awards. The competition, organised by the Funtington Music Group, will be in the University of Chichester Chapel on Wednesday, April 17 at 7.30pm – the FMG’s 16th annual showcase concert.
Chris Hough, FMG chairman, said, “We are fortunate once again to have an enthusiastic field of competitors including classical and musical theatre vocalists, piano and French horn, for what promises to be an entertaining and exciting evening,
“Professor Laura Ritchie will introduce the students and interview them before the adjudication.
“We are honoured that the prizes – first £600, second £350, third £250 and £100 for runners-up – are being presented by the University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Jane Lomgmore. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy inspired music-making from the next generation of performers.”
To quote University Professor, Laura Ritchie, the enthusiastic field of competitors “values the opportunity to perform in front of such a receptive audience”.
