Year 9 student, Noah Lynch (Violin) recently competed in the prestigious English Family Prize, hosted by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. This competition promotes young musicians of school age and encourages them to perform concert repertoire in the form of a movement from a concerto. The formidable line-up featured six of Queensland’s superstars of youth music. Noah won the 2018 Young Instrumentalist Prize playing the final movement of Bruch’s Violin Concerto! This is a wonderful achievement and one that further cements Noah’s position as a frontrunner on the Queensland music scene.
The prize includes the use of a new Violin (professional quality) for a 12 month period, a solo performance accompanied by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra on Friday 9 March at our ENGAGE Education concert at QPAC and a contribution towards further study.
In 2017, Noah placed 3rd in this competition, with his older brother Julius (2017 BBC graduate) placing 2nd. Noah's younger brother Leonardo joined BBC in Year 7 this year. Noah is an active College sportsman in BBC Rowing and Track and Field, as well as an accomplished musician.
