Peterborough Youth Music Showcase

If so, then Peterborough’s New Youth Music Showcase may be the opportunity for you.

For the second year running, the Peterborough Music Hub has joined forces with the Peterborough Music Festival to present a fabulous opportunity for local composers to compete in a Youth Music Showcase of original new music and compositions. The competition provides a great opportunity for entrants to appear on the Key Theatre stage, receive professional feedback and potentially win significant prizes. Winning entrants will also have the opportunity to have their music profiled at civic events throughout the year. Last year’s winner, Thomas Dunleavy, a 10-year old singer and guitarist wowed the audience with a standout performance of original songs. Other entrants, including pianists, a flautist and a rapper were also commended.

The showcase includes three different classes: Singer/Songwriter, Solos or Duets not exceeding five minutes. Solo Instrumentalists not exceeding five minutes. Or a Band/Ensemble, with a maximum 8 performers, not exceeding 8 minutes.
