The event was held at the BIS An Phu Secondary Campus with judges from both British International School and British Vietnamese International School invited to oversee the proceedings. Our judges, Mrs Emma Husband, Mr Ian Alexander and Mr Mat Williams, had a challenging task ahead of them, as they had to decide who would be this year's winner? 

The young musicians played pieces from Russia, Finland, South Korea and other parts of the world by famous composers such as Bach, Schubert and Clementi. We heard performances on the piano, the violin, guitar and cello and were wowed by wonderful musical story-telling. The audience was given a magical, musical and memorable treat!  

Huge congratulations to all of our finalists who had already fought off stiff competition in the first round auditions and the Semi-final challenges to win a space in the Final. A big thank-you to teachers, parents and instrumental teachers for their support of our young musicians during this process.

The finalists were: Sushi Le (piano); Chae Rim Lee (piano); Ha Trung Doan (piano); Jessica Hwang (piano); Tae Wan Oh (violin); Dolly Nguyen (piano); Minh Phuong (Puppy) Tang (piano); Anya Chakrabarty (violin); Johnny Nguyen (guitar); Jae Jung (piano); Chan Yun Park (piano); and Katie Lim (cello).  

I, along with all of the Music Teams from BIS and BVIS, am very proud to announce the winners of the Young Musician of the Year Competition 2016 as: Anya Chakrabarty (first place); Chae Rim Lee (second place); and Chan Yun Park (third place).

Well done to everyone who took part and a huge thank-you for everyone who helped make this event such a success. I look forward to seeing the magic continue next year and to seeing these young musicians continue to grow in their musical confidence.
