RIPON YOUNG MUSICIANS CELLIST IN NATIONAL COMPETITION FINAL

Sixteen-year-old ‘cellist Ben Messenger, one of the 2014 Ripon Young Musicians of the Year, performed in the final of the national Rotary Young Musician competition, having won both the district and regional rounds.  A great achievement.

Ben (16), who lives in Helperby and is a student at Boroughbridge High School, studies the ‘cello with Sue Lowe, one of the country’s best teachers.  He was always determined to study the instrument and began, aged four, on a one-thirty-second-sized ‘cello – which was slightly too large for him.

He competed in the Young Musician Competition, sponsored by Rotary International in Britain and Ireland, at Darwen in Lancashire on Saturday 16 May, when he played a 10-minute programme of contrasting works.  In the Ripon Young Musicians of the Year competition, held in October last year, Ben won Class 6, for students in years 9 and 10, and was chosen to go forward to the Rotary District and Regional rounds, both of which were held in York earlier this year. 

 The Ripon Young Musicians competition is sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Ripon and Ripon Rowels, and by the Inner Wheel of Ripon Rowels. As part of his prize, Ben received tickets for a ‘cello recital organised by Ripon Cathedral Concert Society, where he met local resident David Page, who generously offered to lend Ben a fine antique German ‘cello, which he will play in the final. 

David Winpenny, who founded Ripon Young Musicians of the Year in 2001, says, ‘For several years our competition has provided young musicians for the national Rotary Young Musician event, and we are delighted that this year we have Ben in the final.  We know he is an exceptional musician, and he will undoubtedly do us proud in his music-making.’



SUCCESS AT ROTARY DISTRICT YOUNG MUSICIAN 2015

Congratulations to Ben Messenger for winning Young Musician 2015 at the Rotary District Competition held at the National Centre for Early Music in York on Saturday 7th March.  We wish him well for the Regional Competition.
