In his audition, Tom was required to play two set pieces, a sight reading piece and an unprepared sight reading piece, in front of a panel of adjudicators. His music was well received and Tom was offered a place this week.

Congratulations to Tom for such a fantastic achievement, we look forward to hearing about what you get up to in the coming year.
