BBC Proms Inspire Competition Winner

Izzy Wood, Year 13, has won the Young Composer of the Year, senior category.

What a sensational accolade for Izzy - a testament to our superb music teachers Sarah Kitching, Lucy Greenwood and the music staff at EGS and what a pivotal award for the school reflecting the quality of our Arts education and the belief we have in our young woman.

The BBC Proms Inspire Competition continues to provide what most composers only dream of; the chance to have your music performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Not only this, winners also receive a BBC commission for a high-profile performance and are mentored throughout the process by a professional composer. Previous winners have written for members of Aurora Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Singers for performances at the Last Night of the Proms, BBC Maida Vale Studios and Radio 3 live broadcasts.

Tune in to Radio 3 tonight (29th June) to listen to the winners announcement. Find out more about the Inspire Competition here: BBC Proms Inspire Competition

Congratulations Izzy!
