2022 Festival

The 2022 Festival has finished! A wonderful Final Evening at The Queen's Hall featured nine highlights from the Festival followed by the Concerto Final. Ethan Loch, Shakira Segalla-Humbert and Sofia Ros competed for the Audrey Innes Trophy which was won by Sofia playing Piazzolla Aconcagua Concerto for Accordion. Many congratulations to all three finalists and commiserations to Chun-Yi Kang who had to withdraw.

Thank you to all the performers, adjudicators, teachers and parents who helped make the 2022 Festival a success. Please get in touch if you have any feedback to help us improve for next year.
