Whitgift School launches International Music Competition

29 November 2012

Whitgift School, an independent boys’ secondary school in South Croydon, has launched a new International Music Competition, offering music scholarships as prizes.

The International Music Competition is open to string players only, with three age categories: 12-13, 14-15 and 16-17. To apply, musicians need to submit a YouTube video of them performing a piece of their choice along with brief programme notes. The winners will be selected by a jury after a series of live performances, taking place between 29 June and 3 July 2013.

Among others, the jury will consist of Royal Academy of Music professor Remus Azoitei, cellist and former BBC Young Musician Guy Johnston and Whitgift’s director of music development, Rosanna Whitfield. Winners will be announced at a special gala concert on 3 July 2013 and will perform the first movement of their chosen concerto with the school orchestra in a public concert.

Rosanna Whitfield said she was ‘hugely proud to be part of this educational initiative, which gives us the chance to offer so many wonderful performing opportunities to talented young musicians from around the world’.

The school, which opens new boarding facilities next year, has a 300-seat concert hall, suites for percussion, guitar, brass and string instruments, eight practice rooms and a music library. One scholarship, which will comprise boarding accommodation, full fees and instrumental lessons, will be given per age category. There are also cash prizes and performance opportunities with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Winners will begin studying at Whitgift School during academic year 2013-14. The application deadline is 1 March, and application forms are available at
