Kelson Awards 2017
22nd May 2017
The Kelson and Penelope Thwaites Music Awards are now into their fourteenth year. Auditions have been completed and award recipients notified.
We look forward to welcoming back to Tintern Mr and Mrs Michael Kelson for the presentation of these annual awards next month. Our music students at Tintern are indeed fortunate to have the opportunity to audition for these awards each year, which Mr Kelson set up in 2004 in order to honour the name of his mother, Mrs Ilma Kelson, who was Director of Music at Tintern from 1958 to 1973.
Award recipients for 2017 are:
