Wirral Festival 2009 – Pianoforte Competition

It’s now time to start thinking about competitions and music festival entries for 2009. I will be encouraging many of my students to take part as performance and competition are important ways of sharing as well as developing talent.

I am awaiting details of the Chester festival at the King’s School scheduled for 25th April next year though the Wirral Festival schedule (Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March, 2008) has been published well in advance.

 The Wirral Festival will be taking place at Birkenhead High School, 86 Devonshire Pl
Prenton, CH43 1TY NOT Birkenhead School.
