Dollar Academy Young Musician of the Year Competition 2021

This session, a total of 53 pupils took part in the first round of our Dollar Academy Young Musician and Young Singer of the Year competition.

In previous years, performances took place live in the department with the successful Round 2 performers participating in a lunchtime concert for friends and staff. However, due to COVID restrictions this year, pupils and staff were required to be a little more creative and all submissions were either audio or voice recordings.

At the end of last term, music staff watched all our applicants’ Round 2 videos and we can now congratulate the following pupils who have made it through to the final which will take place on Thursday 29 April at 7pm in the auditorium.

The adjudicator will be Mr Graeme Wilson, Chairman of the Fife Festival of Music and secretary for the Scottish Association for Music Education.

We look forward to an entertaining evening of music making.
