A YOUNG pianist has triumphed in this year's Alcester Singers Young Musician Competition.

 Jack Middleton saw off stuff competition from five other entrants to be crowned champion and take home the trophy and £200 first prize.

The six entrants this year performed their own selection of music to a panel of three judges, each competitor being allowed seven minutes to perform.

The audience were entertained by performances on the guitar, flute, voice and piano.

In the end, Jack's piano performance of Soler's Sonata in D minor and Across The Stars by John Williams from the Star Wars films were judged the winner.

The judges also used their discretion to award a runner-up prize on £50 to Orla Reid who played the main theme from Schindler's List by John Williams on violin.

 The Alcester Singers will be inviting both Jack and Orla to perform at their summer concert in July alongside the choir and other past competition winners.
