JTYAF Chairman, Pete Thornton, was delighted to present the John Thornton Music Awards to eight talented musicians from the Dorset Music Service County Ensembles. The presentation took place at Lytchett Minster School during the Summer Showcase, which featured performances from the Dorset Youth Symphony Orchestra, Reel Dorset, the Dorset Youth Jazz Orchestra and the Dorset Youth Chamber Orchestra.
The award winners were selected because of the remarkable progress that they had made during the season and for their outstanding commitment to the Dorset Youth Orchestras. The bursaries attached to the awards will provide them with the opportunity to further their musical development.
We wish them all every success for their musical careers.
