Reactions to our Digital Young Musician Showcase

As we approach September and what would have been our 3rd festival, we wanted to look back briefly and share with you some of the reactions we had to our Young Musician Showcase, which despite being put together at short notice after the cancellation of our fundraising gala, received some fantastic feedback from all those who tuned in to watch.

As of writing this, we’ve had just around 2,600 views between our Facebook and Youtube pages – a staggering amount, and we were so proud to have been able to find a way of bringing music to people at a time when nobody could gather to make or hear music.

Hear are a few comments we received afterwards:

“Wow, what a great experience and very moving, I’m in awe of the amazing technology I’ve discovered during this unusual time, well done”

“Thank you for a lovely evening. Not the same as a live concert but a treat just the same! Well done”

“I REALLY enjoyed the live stream tonight – fabulous young musicians
without exception.  Thank you SO much and I look forward to more!”

“Great to see something we would have wanted to go to during this time of not much happening.”

“Brilliant everyone! What a superb achievement. Great to hear some familiar musicians a few steps further into their development.”

“Terrific!  The performers, choice of music and informal relaxed style all a great success”

If you felt particularly inspired by our efforts during lockdown, you might want to nominate us for a Royal Philharmonic Society Inspiration Award, which aims to celebrate organisations and individuals across the UK that worked to keep music going and inspire the nation during the lockdown. We’d love it if you would – you can visit the nomination page here!
