YOUNG MUSICIANS OF THE GULF 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on music in schools across the world, both in and out of the classroom. St Christopher’s School is keen to keep music alive and to encourage our children to keep practising and performing to the best of their ability. In these very uncertain times, we feel that music can play an even more important role in the lives of our young musicians. It is for this reason that we have decided to proceed with Young Musicians of the Gulf.
YMOG has allowed our students to compete against the very best in the region and it has always been much more than a competition; it is an opportunity for friendships to be forged and renewed each year. It is always a real joy to see the students interacting throughout the week.
This year, due to COVID-19, we are only able to accept solo, virtual performances. Each participant will be asked to submit four different recordings by the deadline of 7 February. Our independent adjudicators will have access to the videos the day before streaming so results will be announced at the end of each round.
