Barney Young Musician of the Year Competition 2021

24 Jun 2021

Many congratulations to all Barney musicians who were among the finalists at last night’s highly anticipated YMOTY competition!

Mr Dawson, Director of Music, had many difficult decisions to make to name the 11 finalists – with more than 100 entries to the competition, in both the Intermediate and Advanced competitions.

We were delighted to welcome world-renowned jazz musician, Tori Freestone, to Barney to adjudicate the evening. While adjudicating, she was able to offer our musicians plenty of invaluable advice, while being impressed by the standard of competition.

Congratulations to Mila, who won the Intermediate category, and Evie, the winner of the Advanced competition. Ethan and Chloe were recognised as ‘Highly Commended’ in the Intermediate and Advanced categories, respectively.

Well done to all finalists and entrants, and everyone who made the evening so special!

We look forward to next year’s competition, as we hope to build on the success of Barney’s YMOTY 2021.
