TGS Musicians Win Prizes at North London Festival

19th May 23

Students with Their Awards

The Gower School children are excellent musicians! At the 2023 North London Festival of Music, Speech and Drama, TGS children won one medal in the cello solo competition, one medal in the piano solo competition, and four medals in the recorder solo competition.

The festival’s strings, piano and recorder competitions took place throughout May. Each child’s diligent practising in preparation for the festival paid off, as the competition adjudicators were seriously impressed the competition adjudicators with their performances. In all, six children were awarded 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place prizes across three performance categories. Of a Form Four girl’s winning cello performance, a judge commented that she played such a ‘heartfelt and sensitive performance’, and that she shows such potential with her instrument.

Congratulations to the many winning TGS children for their exemplary performances in this prestigious festival – what an outstanding showing for our school! An incredible amount of thanks to our recorder teacher Miss Widdup, our piano teacher Mr Grigoryan, whose excellent teaching have led to this impressive windfall.
