Safe return of all Festival cups and trophies
Auditing returned cups is a mammoth task and requires a lot of time and space. So, to support and make this task as easy as possible for Carolyne, we ask that they be returned to her as soon as possible. Ideally, before 30th October 2020.
Because of the current situation with Coronavirus, to avoid close contact cups can be left in the labelled box in Carolyne’s back garden, or they can be posted to the address below:
- 18 Woolcombe Lane
- Plymouth PA21 0UA
- 01752 895254 or 07881 303204
- [email protected] or [email protected]
If you have any queries regarding the return of your cup or trophy please contact Carolyne. You can also contact her to make a personal arrangement. She is always very helpful.
The adjudicator for the Instrumental Section of our 2021 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.
