Sunday 14th October 2018 saw the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s (RCS) first ever Clarinet Competition for young musicians, sponsored by Buffet Crampon, and ourselves at The Wind Section providing the prize for the winner.
The all-day event took place at the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow. More than 200 people attended the event and the RCS Clarinet Department played to a full house during their lunchtime concert.
There were events and masterclasses held throughout the day, as well as a showcase concert that involved a mass chorus of clarinets directed by none other than John Cushing. This group brought together a range of talents spanning from budding youngsters to top professionals, all playing side-by-side in this special, collaborative performance.
We wish to congratulate all of the finalists of the Conservatoire Clarinet Competition again, Tomas Milerius (winner), Lily Payne, Dominik Palic & Leo Kerr who all gave wonderful performances & to Aidan Teplitzky, winner of the Clarinet Composition Prize, with his work ‘Weaving’ receiving its premiere performance at the festival by Yann Ghiro.
It was a very successful event and a fun-filled day for everyone involved!
