Beacon Bard and Musician of the Year 2021 Winners!

5 July 2021

This weekend we hugely enjoyed the annual Beacon Bard and Beacon Musician of the Year event, which took place online and saw some of  Year 6 to 8’s most talented musicians and actors share their wonderful skills with our Beacon Community.

Selecting the school’s top musicians and actors is extremely challenging but, luckily, our boys’ dramatic performances were watched and adjudicated by actor Joe Ashman, former pupil of the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, and star of the Netflix series Free Rein plus the iPlayer series Get Even. Our Beacon Musician entries were adjudicated by Mike Macdonald, teacher at the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, both of whom provided really insightful, positive and encouraging feedback to each and every performer.

We are delighted to share with you the final results:

Beacon Young Musician of the Year 2021

Year 6 Runner Up – Milan A.

Year 8 Runner Up – Ethan R-K.

Beacon Musician of the Year Winner – Alexey A.
