Young Musicians Chosen For Bermuda Festival

January 16, 2018

11-year-old Indigo Adamson and seven violinists from the Bermuda School of Music have been selected to perform as part of the 2018 Bermuda Festival, taking to the City Hall stage on Tuesday, Jan 30th.

And the judges were so impressed by the runners-up Brothers in Music that the CedarBridge Academy’s band has also been invited to appear on the same bill and other contestants in last Saturday’s competition round may appear as back-up in other Festival performances.

Festival Director David Skinner said, “If Saturday night’s experience is any guide, what with its full house enchanted by a night of outstanding music-making, then the gala performance on the 30th will be a night to remember.

Thanking judges Dale Butler, Barrit Dill and Chris Darrell, MC Patrina Paynter, coaches David and Theresa Minors and sponsor Aspen, Mr Skinner said the commitment of the students, their teachers and their families had been an inspiration.

Tickets for the Performance Night on Jan.30th at City Hall can be obtained online from

    I am thrilled for the young people. Well done.

  2. Community First says:

    First – congratulations to the talented musicians who participated under the umbrella of the Bermuda Festival, funding from Aspen and leadership of Mr. Skinner.

    You all have created a pathway for our emerging talent to be a part of our Festival and put these young Bermudian front and centre. The line up this year clearly is about honouring our Bermudian talent while hosting extraordinary talent from away.

    It is heartening to see these opportunities be supported by so many to make this happen – thank you all.

  3. Great performance says:

    Great performance by the young people. Kudos to experience it live! One suggestion for the committee…please include at least one female judge in the future and have at least one vocal judge.

    To the young people, keep striving for excellence.
