TOP local choir the Alcester Singers are holding their annual Young Musicians competition on Friday, November 22 at 7pm.
The competition is open to musicians aged between 11 and 18 who live or attend school within 10 miles of Alcester and are of Grade 5 standard or above.
There is a prize of £200 for the winner and the opportunity to perform at the choir’s summer concert in July alongside Alcester Singers and other Young Musician competition winners.
