On Tuesday evening Lewis Wood and Charlie Rogers Smith took part in Blackpool's Musician of the Year competing against Blackpool Schools most talented musicians.
The standard was exceptional with the majority of performances at the highest technical level. The competition was split into two Key stages. Charlie played Bach's Prelude in D which gained him 3rd place amongst a strong field of musicians.
However it was St Mary's Lewis Wood who took 1st prize in the KS3 category performing Frensham & Pond for Clarinet by William Lloyd Webber which won over the adjudicators.
Lewis Wood will be invited to give further performances throughout the year representing both St Mary's and Blackpool Music services at venues including the Town hall.
