Music Finalist

simon jones 01Simon Jones performed as a finalist in the NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition this past weekend. He had been passed through rounds of competition, performing a movement from a concerto with piano accompaniment and was given the honour of performing with the Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra.

2017 is the 33rd year Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra has run the NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition. The competition is open to secondary school pupils in Years 7-12 at schools throughout NSW and the ACT and this year attracted just under 100 entrants, eager to compete for a coveted position in the Finals Concert.

Regarded as a stepping stone to national and international success, the competition has been held annually since 1984 and provides an invaluable performance opportunity for young musicians to showcase their talents as concerti soloists accompanied by orchestra. The list of previous winners reflects the names of many well known personalities in the music world, such as Amy Dickson, Natalie Chee, Grace Clifford and Simon Tedeschi.

Congratulations, Simon!
