Tom Stevens, a Year 8 student and talented trumpet player has been awarded a bursary to go to EYSM (European Youth Summer Music) from the Blackburn Festival of Speech, Music and Dance.
EYSM attracts young people from all over the world including festival winners from across the UK and as far afield as Hong Kong and Trinidad and Tobago festivals. Last year students came from Europe, China, New Zealand and the USA.
Tom will spend over a week in Surrey in the summer and will have the opportunity to attend sessions such as big band, improvisation and brass ensembles.
Congratulations to Tom for such a fantastic achievement and we look forward to hearing all about it in September!
