Young people aged between 10 and 17 took part in ‘Cheddar Valley’s Got Talent’, a music competition organised by the Rotary Club of Mendip which took place at Kings of Wessex Academy recently. The best under-13 entrant was Marishelle Harris with her piano playing of ‘Moody Prawn Blues’ by Franklyn Gellnick. The senior competition was won by Phoebe Lynch, a trumpeter, who played Slavonic Fantasy by Carl Höhne. Phoebe will go on to take part in the district competition in 2016.
Organiser Maggie Steel said, “We have had a wonderful evening’s entertainment, showing that there is a great deal of musical talent in the Cheddar Valley.” She went on to thank the adjudicators Jayne Obradovic from Wells Cathedral School, and professional singer Katherine Harris, and the music staff from Hugh Sexey Middle School and Kings of Wessex for their support.
