Competition 2019 Selected Candidates’ Stories

First of all, we would like to thank all candidates and their families for participating in the 2nd New Talent British International Youth Music Competition 2019. We were delighted that so many young musicians from over 15 countries came to London to take part in our competition this year. We would like to share some of their stories in the form of interviews to celebrate their hard work and achievements and also to give the wider community of young musicians world-wide some inspiration and insights into some of their experiences and tips they’ve collected along their music journeys.
