A total of 11 performers from Westhill Academy took part in the Young Musician of the Year competition, held at Trinity Church last month.

The event was organised by the Rotary Club of Westhill & District and was supported by a small but appreciative number of family and friends.

The panel of judges were very generous with their praise for the high standard of performances from the competitors, especially for those who were performing in public for the first time. The judges also gave each one words of advice, which will enable them to improve on future performances.

In the junior section, Jing Jing Wong on flute was judged to be the winner, while in the senior section, Rebecca Marriner on cello was the winner. Jing Jing Wong was declared to be the overall winner and she was presented with the Chap Construction Trophy.

A spokesperson for Westhill Rotary said: “We are greatly obliged to Rhonda Pirie and her staff in the Music Department for their assistance in making this a very enjoyable and successful evening.”

Westhill Rotary President Colin Currie presented the trophy to the winner and certificates to all the participants.
