Southend Music Festival Performance List 2018

Below you will find a brand new Elena Cobb Star Prize Performance List for Southend Musical Festival in 2018.

Performers in all categories must select pieces accordingly to their Grade/Level.
Adjudication will be based on the overall excellence of the performance and musicianship, e.g. text accuracy, musicality and general impression of which particular performance was better and stood out from the crowd.
In addition to the cash prizes, the winners in each category will have an opportunity to perform at the Elena Cobb Star Prize Festival at the Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room in April 2020.
