The Soham Village College young musician of the year final saw a wide range of music performed.

A spokesman for the college said: “This year was once again a wonderful evening of incredible musicianship and talent!.

“The PAC auditorium was packed and the audience were treated to an extravaganza of solo performances, with the usual eclectic mix of performances including jazz saxophone, Jimi Hendrix, songs from musicals and so much more.

“Whilst the guest adjudicator, Matthew Rudd, made some very difficult decisions the audience enjoyed performances from two choirs, Colla Voce SVC choir led by Allyson Dobie-Oxley and Ely St Mary’s Primary School Choirled by Hazel Law.”
