Would you like to support Hastings Musical Festival and present a trophy? The Singing Section has several classes which do not yet have a trophy. Our trophies have been presented over the years by local companies, former (and current) competitors and from families involved in the Festival, often in memory of a relative or to support a particular style of music they enjoyed. We are very grateful to everyone who has donated a trophy in the past, but new classes and age groups are constantly being added and we would ideally like to have a trophy for every class to reward the winner in an often hard-fought competition.
We are very happy for the trophy donor to present the prize to the class winner if they wish– the trophy often means more to the winner if they know the history behind it, or why it was donated.
The following classes currently do not have trophies (as of February 2013):
2020 Singing Solo Girls Age 9
2028 Singing Solo Girls Age 11
2116 Self Accompanied Age 11 and under 16
2292 Singer and Accompanist Age 15 under 18
2296 Show Song, Duet Age 9 and under 13
2308 Duet Age under 13
2320 Operatic Duet Age 18 and over
2326 Show Song Ensemble Age under 18
2334 Pop Vocal Duet and Ensemble Age 14 and over
Perhaps you won a class in the past and would like future winners to have a trophy? Is there a particular style of singing which you enjoy and would like to encourage? Or maybe you just would like to support the Festival, or give something back after years of taking part? If you are interested in providing a trophy for any of the above classes, please contact the Singing Secretary.
