On 26th March, we returned to the Silk Street venue at Guildhall School of Music and Drama for the annual Woodwind Competition. This is the 27th year that the Needlemakers have supported this event. Having been whittled down to 4, Adjudicator Sarah Burnett had the difficult task to select the winner. Finalists Bernice Lee (oboe), Isha Crichlow (clarinet) and Roxana Seddon (oboe) all displayed a very high standard however the top honour was awarded to Rees Webster (oboe), who played a very varied programme. Following the competition, Needlemakers and finalists adjourned to Osteria in the Barbican for a very enjoyable supper to celebrate.
