Ocarina Winners

The National Festival of Music for Youth 2005 involved over 100,000 young musicians. Of the many groups taking part, a few were invited to perform in the finals, where Outstanding Performance Awards were made for the most exceptional performances.

Our Ocarina group of fifteen players, aged 8 to 12 years, were surprised to be selected for the finals, and completely amazed to receive the Outstanding Performance Award in the Junior class. Their performance was captured on the day from a distance, and rehearsals show how they prepared for this peak of achievement.
