1 Dec - Alfie Beston Wins The Minting Cup 2018


Many congratulations to Alfie Beston (saxophone) who has been awarded the Minting Cup for 2018. Congratulations also to Rohan Selva-Radov (clarinet), Ben Joshua-Yip (piano) who were also finalists. The Minting Cup is the Bromley Youth Music Trust’s annual solo competition for musicians in year 9 and below. Seven instrumentalists performed in the final from over a hundred eligible musicians – four girls and the three St. Olave’s boys.

The adjudicator Andrew Barclay, the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal percussionist, commented in his summing up that he wished that he had 7 trophies so that all of the performers could have received one for their excellent solo performances. Well done to all three boys, the School is really proud of you.
