Congratulations to Hugh D (Upper Sixth) for his success at the Kent County Organ Competition on Saturday at All Saints Church, Maidstone. Hugh’s programme of Bach and Duruflé drew praise from the adjudicator, Dr David Flood (former Organist of Canterbury Cathedral). Hugh played brilliantly, rising to the challenge of a demanding instrument and was the joint recipient of the Reginald Adams Memorial Prize.

Thanks to Miss Roux for her expert page-turning and registrations! We are eager to hear more of Hugh’s successes as he starts at the Royal Academy of Music in September.
