At 7pm on Wednesday 13th March, MagSoc will host the Third Annual Tyro Prize Concert in the Old Hall at Queens’ College. Six amateur performers will come together to present their music to the audience and the panel of judges, and at the end of the evening, an award will be made of £100 to one of the entrants, to further their musical life in the college.

The Tyro Music Prize was established to promote the music-making of everyday students at Queens’, in the hope of encouraging people who play an instrument purely as a hobby to continue their music making whilst at Queens’, and to allow confidence in music to spread to the rest of their university life. The Tyro Prize is open to all instrumentalists and singers, regardless of genre and performing experience, often making for an incredibly varied programme of music.

At this year’s concert, the audience will also be treated to a short violin performance by Patrick Bevan, Michael Williamson Instrumental Scholar at Queens’, at the end of the evening.

Entry to the Tyro Prize Concert is free, and all are welcome to attend.
