Barnes Young Musician of the Year 2024

Since its establishment in 2016, in conjunction with Barnes Music Society, Barnes Young Musician has witnessed more than 80 aspiring instrumentalists and vocalists take the stage in the final adjudication. In this upcoming year, Nicholas Daniel OBE — widely recognised as one of the world’s most distinguished oboists — becomes the latest addition to Barnes’ prestigious lineup of esteemed adjudicators, tasked with selecting our prize-winners for 2024.

Leading up to the Finals, a series of masterclasses covering piano, strings, woodwind and brass have been organised for students of varying skill levels. These sessions have been conducted by exceptionally talented professional musicians and have been graciously hosted by institutions including St Paul’s School, Harrodian School, St Paul’s Girls’ School, and Ibstock Place School. From among the participants in these masterclasses, the most outstanding performers have been selected to advance to the Final Adjudication.

The winner of Barnes Young Musician of the Year is invited to play at the final event of the festival.

Nicholas Daniel, Adjudicator
