Congratulations to Rebecca Crawshaw, soprano cornet with Virtuosi GUS Band on winning her way to the final of the BBC Radio 2 Young Musician of the Year. The semi-final featured a stunning virtuoso performance from Rebecca Crawshaw who is currently studying medicine at the University of Cambridge as well as playing soprano with the Virtuosi GUS Band. As soon as Rebecca started to play she had an air of confidence in her ability and complete understanding of the music in front of her. 'Rhapsody for Eb Soprano Cornet and Band' by Robert Eaves is an old favourite for solo contests whilst film music by John Barry entitled 'Somewhere In Time' was in complete contrast and just as impressive.
