It is a privilege to be organising Young Musician of the Gulf 2018. This is my first year at St Christopher's school and I am excited about the prospect of hearing so many talented musicians from all over the Gulf region. I am 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. Ashley Wass, is returning again as our lead adjudicator alongside David Campbell and Matthew Trussler; all have a wealth of musical knowledge and expertise to share with the competitors.
This year is a significant year at St Christopher's as we are saying farewell to our Principal, Ed Goodwin. We wish him and his wife, Wendy an enjoyable and restful retirement and recognise all the dedication and support that they have given to the competition over the years.
Finally I would like to thank our sponsors for their support for Young Musician of The Gulf and I hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable few days.
