George Lashbrook received first place in the Keyboard class performing I’m Still Standing by Elton John. Theo Salifu excelled in the Preparatory Popular piano, earning first place for his performance of Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud. Meanwhile a string performer for the future, Jayden Laplante won the Preparatory Strings category playing Takin’ it Easy on the violin.
Other notable performances were by Anna Wilson ( Electric Guitar) Olivia Sparrow (keyboard) Yasir Lawal (trombone) and Emily Cunningham (with a vocal performance of I’m Almost There from The Princess and the Frog).
