Isabel Jay Trophy Presentation 28th November 2014

At MSCMF Showcase & presentation of Awards

The Isabel Jay Trophy was awarded to Polly Beaumont at the Mid Sussex Competitive Music Festival Showcase on 28th November as the winner of class 427 ‘any song from Gilbert and Sullivan’ by a soloist, duet, trio, quartet or ensemble.

I attended class 427, although there were only two competitors in the class, both were excellent performers, Polly however, I concurred with the choice of the adjudicator Gabrielle Burgin Lister GRSM, ARMCM, PGCA.

Polly is in her final year at Burgess Hill School for Girls, next September she hopes to read philosophy at university. Her singing teacher is Rebecca Dowden and Festival Chair, also her mother is the Treasurer and Cups Secretary for the Festival.


The showcase was an excellent hour of gorgeous music from students at the festival, Polly with her sister, as members of a violin quartet, played the first movement of Brahms Brandenburg Concerto No 3.

The awards were presented by Nicholas Chisholm former Headmaster at the Yehudi Menuhin School of Music.
