BSME Young Musicians of the Gulf

27 - 30 January 2020 | St. Christopher's School

This prestigious event, celebrating the abilities of accomplished musicians, is our most popular non-sporting event. New and returning schools are welcome to join this fast-paced, high energy competition. 

Over one hundred young musicians from across the Gulf region participate in three days of competition, and the standard of performing is consistently very high. The majority of participants are usually aged between 14 and 17 years of age, although some have been even younger. Participants can perform as soloists as well as part of an ensemble. There are trophies awarded to the top musicians in each instrumental category as well as an overall winner and runner up.

The event has greatly benefitted from three highly accomplished and prominent adjudicators, usually visiting from the UK.  In recent years the adjudicators have remarked on the consistently impressive level of musical talent on show; the dedication of all the performers; and the show of support and mutual respect being clearly evident between all of the contestants. All the musicians also have an opportunity to attend Master Classes led by the adjudicators in the lead up to the Grand Final.

Please note that only BSME member schools are able to participate in BSME Student events.

Registration for this event is now closed.
