BBC Young Composer Prize winner

Congratulations to past Music student Nathan Hough on being highly commended in the BBC Young Composer competition over the summer. The competition is part of the BBC Proms Inspire scheme for young composers which provides 12 to 18 year olds with a platform to meet other young music-makers, share ideas and develop their musical creativity while learning from some of the UK’s top composers and musicians.

There was only one winner in each age group category and two entrants were Highly Commended, from a huge number of competitors, so huge congratulations must go to Nathan for this fantastic achievement on a national platform. We look forward to hearing Nathan’s piece “You and You Alone” and to watching his musical progress in the future.
