Young Soloist Competition


Jenny Whitby with the trophyLast night the Winchester Symphony Orchestra accompanied three fantastic young soloists: Jenny Whitby on flute, Matthew Crisp on violin and Mike Huang on 'cello. They all played wonderfully and the judges’ decision was not easy. In the end Jenny won with her performance of the Nielsen Flute Concerto.

We were grateful to our main sponsor, Bargate Homes, for providing the trophy and to the other sponsors of the event for providing prizes for the soloists.

We are hopeful this will become an annual event. If you would like to sponsor or take part in next year’s competition please contact the orchestra through the website. For all those who missed out by not making it to the concert, here is a clip of the soloists rehearsing with us as shown on ITV news on Friday 9th May.

We look forward to welcoming you back for the Winchester Symphony Orchestra concert on 23rd November 2014 when we will be playing Mahler's 5th Symphony.
