A night to remember – for free Cambridge Youth Music (CYM) is a Charitable Trust set up to support music-making opportunities for young people in the Cambridge area. The competition conducted by CYM takes place annually attracting youngsters aged 10 – 18, dividing them into different age groups. Winners are given the chance to perform at the prestigious West Road Concert Hall together with the Granta Sinfonia, conducted by Michael Downes. Singer George Eddy, 18, was selected as the Cambridge Young Musician of the Year 2008. Eddy comes from March and studies singing. He is a former Ely Cathedral chorister and King’s School Ely pupil. George will be singing favourites from Handel, Negro Spirituals and West End shows. Standards were exceptionally high and the judges had a very hard job selecting the overall winners of Cambridge Young Composer of the Year. Parker Ramsay, 16, was rewarded for his winning composition, 'New Mexico Portrait', a piece for flute, clarinet, bassoon and piano, inspired by a watercolour painting of New Mexico given to him by his grandmother. Parker who is a pupil at King's School, Ely, has been composing since the age of 10. Judge Gillian Thoday said: “I was extremely impressed with the overall standard - it is clear that young musicians in the Cambridge area are being fostered by expert hands." Other winners from the performing competition are percussionist Lucy Landymore, cellist Victoria Nicoll as wel福彩3d五行南方属什么 l as Jake Howarth, George Robarts and Nick White. Granta Sinfonia will also perform Mozart and works of contemporary composer Jonathan Dove. This unique music event is taking place this Sunday, 11 May, from 7.00 pm at West Road Concert Hall.
