Staffordshire Young Musician

The Music Service organises the annual Staffordshire Young Musician competition for Instrumentalists, Singers, and Composers. This event has expanded significantly in recent years with hundreds of applicants applying via video for the first round with the finals taking place in July.

The events are supported by The Friends of Staffordshire’s Young Musicians (FOSYM). FOSYM’s support over the years has been vital in providing an opportunity to encourage and celebrate the hard work and achievement of young people in their music-making.

Those that win the coveted title of ‘Staffordshire Young Musician’ report how being part of the events has inspired them and given them confidence at a vital stage in their musical journey. It has also opened up opportunities.
