A CONCERT has been organised at Dorchester Abbey at 7pm on Thursday to celebrate the talents of the Young Musician competition winners and to raise funds for SeeSaw and End Polio Now.
The Rotary Club has staged the event, which will feature Rebecca Babbage (violin), Bella Bourne Swinton Hunter (piano, violin), sisters Eve (flute) and Florence Cain (vocals), Tavia Lewis (vocals), and Robert Cheung (piano), who won the National Young Musician Competition 2014 promoted by Rotary International.
The annual competition offers young people an opportunity to showcase their musical talent, as well as impartial feedback and an assessment of their performance by experienced adjudicators.
It is open to all grades of amateur instrumentalists and vocalists in full-time education up to the age of 18 and is one of several competitions run by the Rotary Club.
They also organise Young Chef, Young Photographer, Young Writer, Youth Speaks, Technology Tournament and Young Citizen Awards.
The concert will coincide with a visit from Peter King, president of the Rotary Club of Great Britain and Ireland.
Profits from the evening will be divided between Oxfordshire charity SeeSaw and the End Polio Now campaign.
SeeSaw provides support for grieving children, young people and their families in Oxfordshire facing or following the death of a parent or sibling, and has supported more than 4,300 such people.
