“You’re providing an invaluable building block for these talented youngsters. Keep it rolling!” – Sophie Langdon, violinist, Farnham

“I have had the pleasure of presenting students for this competition since it started two years ago.  I had no idea that they would be so successful and that the completion would be so well run. As a Double bass Professor it is extremely rare, even unheard of for a competition to be so bass friendly and unbiased. It is relaxed and the students feel completely at ease and encouraged to play their best. The early rounds were supportive in a way I have never experienced before. Ishani knows exactly how to create an atmosphere where the students feel comfortable. The judges are seasoned musicians without attitude and have given very open and helpful remarks on the performances. For any string player this competition will give the student a valuable experience that they will remember for life. The Church where the final is has a wonderful atmosphere and sound for strings, and particularly for the bass, which is very unusual also.”
