The St. Olave’s community wishes to join with the students, staff and trustees of Bromley Youth Music Trust in congratulating Sachin for winning the BYMT Rotary Trotman Final 2019. The competition took place on Saturday 26th January at the Bromley Youth Music Trust centre in Southborough. The adjudicator of the finalists was Emily White, Professor of Trombone and Sackbut at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and The Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
The preliminary rounds for the competition were in early December, with the BYMT Heads of Department being extremely impressed with the high quality of entries. It was here that Sachin was shortlisted as one of six finalists.
To reach the final was itself an incredible achievement, against intense competition from the very many talented musicians from across the borough. Gaining first place in such an event is an exceptionally high accolade, well-deserved in Sachin’s case for an outstanding percussion performance.
