The first prize winners from the initial round of competitions (including voice, piano, strings, classical guitar, woodwind, brass, chamber group, and musical theatre solo) competed in the Grand Award Competition.
Andrew won the 2nd Prize Grand Award.
You can watch the live stream of the Grand Competition on the Festival Facebook page.
From Andrew, who received Talent Trust scholarships from 2014-17:
“I just wanted to thank the Talent Trust for the tremendous amount of support over the years. I have never thought I would be able to reach such a place, but with the support and encouragement of the Talent Trust and many friends around me, I just feel so grateful and thankful.”
As the winner of the 2018 Atlantic Young Artist Competition, Andrew will be performing on a regional tour. His final concert will be in Halifax in November. Stay tuned for details.
