Brookes Education Group: The RBCC Gryphon Young Musician Award

Dear Heads of School and Heads of Music,

I hope that you are all well, and that your new academic years have started as well as ours at Brookes Russia. It is such a relief to have all our children and staff back in the building following the challenging pandemic times.

I am writing today, to invite you and your school children to participate as a school in our annual Gryphon Young Musician Award. In our first year, this event was a huge success, hosted by the Russo British Chamber of Commerce and attended and presented by HRH Prince Michael of Kent.

I am delighted to announce that, subject to any further COVID restrictions placed upon us, that we will be holding the event on the following dates:

Friday 12th November 2021 - Deadline for video entries

Saturday 27th November 2021 - Live Heats at Brookes Moscow

Wednesday 1st December 2021 - Gala Final of the Gryphon Young Musician

Due to travel restrictions currently in place, we are awaiting news as to whether HRH Prince Michael of Kent will be able to join us again this year for the Gala Final. The title of RBCC Gryphon Young Musician of the Year will be presented to the winner, as well as the opportunity to have an all expenses paid trip to the BBC Proms in 2022.

This year, entries will be only for International or local schools in Moscow & Saint Petersburg. Specialist music schools will not be permitted to enter.

I fully understand that you all have busy term schedules, however, I do hope that you will give this due consideration, and enter a team of your very talented performers. There is no limit on entries per school, for the video entries to the

competition. Please see accompanying sheet for entry rules and regulations.

With very best wishes,

Charley King

Director of Schools
