Virtual Young Musician of the Year 2021

After an extremely successful launch in 2020, the Virtual Musician of the Year was relaunched for 2021. There were different musical categories to enter into, along with age groups. This competition was available to our students, both in Primary and High School. 

Our magical performances

We had some incredible performances all round from our talented St Andrews students. There were a vast array of music styles and genres. We had traditional Thai instrumentals, heavenly classical performances and even some blasts from the past with throwback songs from rockstars and award-winning tunes from musicals.

Now before we show all the winning performances in action, we would like to congratulate and thank everyone for entering their performances into the competition. To highlight the fierce competition and magnitude of this achievement, see the below statistics:
