Trianon is no stranger to running competitions. Previous winners of contests include many names now well known both on the national and international circuit.
One such person is Anthony Marwood who was described by one US magazine as "one of the finest young violinists now before the public". He won the Trianon Music Group's Strings Competition in 1983.
The East of England Young Musicians' Competition takes place at the Great School, Ipswich School, (via the Ivry Street entrance) on March 1. The first round sessions will start at 9am and 1pm with the final taking place at 7pm.
Tickets cost £2.50 to £5 (Trianon members and children aged 16 or younger get into the first round free) and are available at Music World, Queens Street, Ipswich.
