Two weekends ago, Ciaran, Year 7, participated in the UK accordion championships in Liverpool, performing in four categories which are listed below, along with his placings:
Polka solo championship (12 years and under) – 2nd place.
Higher intermediate solo championships (17 years and under) – 2nd place.
Composers competition (junior) – 1st place.
Solo competition (13 years and under) – 1st place.
Ciaran will soon be taking his grade 6 examination. Following this, he will be taking part in a qualifying event in the hope of getting through to the CMA ‘Trophee Mondial’. This is an international festival to be held in Onet-Le-Chateau, France, in October. Best of luck Ciaran!
