We are delighted to introduce the two young musicians who each won a pair of season tickets to the Brighton Phil’s 2018/19 season through their participation in this year’s Springboard Festival. They have also been invited to attend a BPO rehearsal at the Dome to meet the orchestra and conductor.
Tyzer McAllister (aged 13) won the Brighton Hammond Organ Society Challenge Cup, awarded for the best jazz performance in the piano section, for the third year running. He played Blues for Tom by Charles Beale.
He also played violin in the Grades 6-7 class as well as the Junior Recital class, scoring well in both.
Lucy Leete (aged 14) won First with Honours in the Woodwind Solo Grade 7 and over class, playing Hypnosis by Ian Clarke. She also won the Patrick Criswell Challenge Cup, awarded in recognition of her highest points score across four classes within the senior brass and woodwind sections.
Lucy is a member of the South Downs Youth Orchestra and Classic Flutes, both via the East Sussex Music Service, and recently passed her Grade 8 flute with distinction.
