The City of Plymouth Festival is very excited and looking forward to our 2020 Music Instrumental festival.
Thanks to the hard work and commitment of our Music festival organiser Anne Rescorl, the music section of our festival is slowly going from strength to strength.
Once again, this year’s Instrumental section of the 2020 Music Festival is being held at Sherwell Church, North Hill, PL4 8ER. It will run for two days, opening on Friday 13th and closing on Saturday November 14th.
Run My Festival will open entry into the Instrumental and Vocal festivals on Sunday 6th September and remain open until Friday 9th October 2020.
The adjudicator for the Instrumental Section of our 2020 City of Plymouth Music Festival is:
Gillian studied the bassoon with Archie Camden at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and, after a period of freelance playing, concentrated on a teaching career, before moving to Harpenden where she established her own Music School, “Harpenden Musicale”.
As well as running the Music School, Gill arranges Musicale Holidays, Competitions and a Summer Music Festival. She is the founder and Musical Director of the National Children’s Wind Orchestra and associated groups. Gill is an adjudicator for The British and International Federation of Festivals and very much enjoys contact with young musicians, inspiring and enthusing their interest in music.
The Festival Performance
The Festival experience differs from the examination situation in that it offers participants the opportunity to perform on a public stage in front of an audience and receive a mark and feedback from a qualified adjudicator.
The adjudicator will therefore look for a complete performance, including attention to dress, entrances and exits, announcing and acknowledging both applause and, where appropriate, the accompanist.
