One of the top music competitions for young people in Wales and throughout the UK has said goodbye to one of its long-serving members.
The Gregynog Young Musician Competition was launched in 2005 and includes cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason as a past winner who has gone on to reach number one in the classical music charts. He was also invited to play at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in June.
Lesley Geary is retiring as secretary to the competition which is staged annually at the famous Gregynog Hall at Tregynon, near Newtown, Powys.
Sarah Garrett is the organisation’s new administration secretary.
Chairman, Edd Rayner, thanked Lesley for her hard work and invaluable contribution to the competition’s growth in stature and prestige over recent years.
He said: “What began as a local music competition in 2005, to encourage young people to reach the highest standards in the classical music world, has developed into one of the leading competitions of its kind in the country.
“I’d like to thank Lesley for her dedication and hard work during this time. We now look forward to working with Sarah, one of three to take on the ever-increasing workload.”
