Students impress at the Oswestry Youth Music Festival

Molly and Amy Fry took part in the Oswestry Youth Music Festival last week, representing Sir John Talbot’s School.

Molly (on clarinet) took first place in the ‘15 and under Woodwind Class’ and was invited to play in the final competition on Sunday against string, voice, piano, brass and drum soloists.  She rose to the challenge playing Cavallini’s ‘Una Lagrima Sulla Tomba Dell’Immortale Rossini’ and was awarded the Oswestry Town Council Junior Cup!  Both adjudicators made a point of complimenting Molly on both her technical skills and musical interpretation.

Amy (on flute), took first place in both the ‘18 and under’ and ’21 and under’ Woodwind Classes.  She was also invited to play in the final competition on Sunday for the Senior Cup in a class which included two music degree students.  Playing the Andantino from Prokofiev’s Flute Sonata and the Passepied from Vaughan Williams’ Suite de Ballet, Amy came a close second to the vocalist – a 21 year old final year student from the Welsh Conservatoire! Both adjudicators also complimented Amy on her performances.

A huge congratulations and well done to Molly and Amy on their wonderful achievements, both girls did Sir John Talbot’s proud!
