Singing their praises!

The Rotary Club of Congleton were delighted to support three winners from the recent Rotary district Young Musician of the Year competition, at the regional heat last weekend, where two talented musicians, sisters Emily & Julia Teagle and vocalist Maddie Harbisher from Eaton Bank Academy accepted the challenge to perform in front of a large audience, against other young performers in the north west. Emily played the flute whilst Julia played the Alto Saxophone, Maddie sang two superb songs and all were accompanied by pianist Andrew Burr. The turn out and standard of musical talent was outstanding, making judging extremely difficult, but there could only be one winner from the vocal and instrumental contestants . Despite their absolute best efforts, and excellent talent, the three young ladies representing Congleton did not progress onto the national finals but nevertheless, gave exemplary performances.

Rotary Club of Congleton President, Rtn Ernie Clarke, said of the event, "I would like to thank and congratulate all the participants who represented our town and to the parents and teachers for supporting their children. We are extremely proud of their achievements, not only for Congleton but also for our fabulous young musicians, proving that skills and talent can reap rewards and pleasure. I would also like to thank our Rotarians who continue to work extremely hard to arrange these events, in particular to Rtn Rod Goodier for his efficient management and dedication to ensuring that our involvement in this event ran so smoothly. A special thank you must also extend to the Rotary Club of Crewe for arranging the event and to South Cheshire College for kindly providing the excellent venue".

Meanwhile DG Stuart Sawle from D1285 adds:
Congratulations to Nick Gartland (sponsored by the Rotary Club of Warrington) who moved many in the audience to tears with his rendition of “Bring Him Home” from ‘Les Miserables’.

The overall performance of the contestants was to an incredibly high standard. In the Instrumental section, Xander Croft - a young violinist– performed a piece that would have tested many professional musicians.It was truly outstanding.

The National Final will be held on Saturday May 16th In Darwen.
