We have enjoyed looking through entries from students from all over the UK and are excited to announce a shortlist:
Thomas Simpson- Magdalen College School, Oxford
Daniel Sandell- Harrow School
Christopher Brain- Winchester College
Thomas Jansson- d'Overbroeck's
Those students who have been shortlisted have been invited to an online masterclass on Saturday 5th September, where the judges will give feedback and advice. The winner will be announced at the start of this year's festival (which is going ahead!), where it will be performed by Priya Mitchell, the festival director.
