It is a privilege to organise the Young Musicians of the Gulf 2019. The competition recognises our musically talented youngsters from across the Gulf Region and we look forward to hearing them perform.
I was impressed with the standard of performances last year and I am sure that this year will be no exception. I continue to be very grateful to all those instrumental teachers who have prepared the students for this occasion and I am sure they will join me in wishing them well in their performances over the next few days.
We welcome our three distinguished adjudicators who will be giving valuable feedback to the performers throughout the competition. We are glad that David Campbell accepted our request to be lead adjudicator this year and David has set the Test Pieces to challenge our competitors to the full.
This year, we are delighted to introduce a vocal specialist, Sarah Jefferies, who joins us from The UK. Penny Stirling joins us again and all three adjudicators have a wealth of musical knowledge and expertise to share with the competitors.
