We are delighted to hear that our regular performer Jack Reilly, Year 14 student in Kilkeel High School, and pupil of the EA Southern Music Service, has just learned that he has won a French Horn Scholarship to Guildhall School of Music. Jack’s exceptional musicianship has already been widely recognised; he is Principal Horn in both the SUYO and the UYO, and was a finalist in the 2019 Northern Ireland Young Musician of the Year Competition. He is performing in the first heat for the 2020 NI Young Musician Competition in two days’ time on February 22nd.
Jack will take up his place in Guildhall School, a global leader of creative and professional practice, in September. We wish him every success in his future career.
