Tegid Goodman-Jones scoops £200 cash prize after Young Musician of the Year triumph

A singing sensation at Rydal Penrhos added to his phenomenal success with another competition win.

Tegid Goodman-Jones, a Year 9 pupil at the school, produced another stunning effort to come away with the Young Musician of the Year crown from a regional event, which was held in Caerwys recently.

The 14-year-old produced a fantastic vocal effort during what was a highly competitive event, and he received a cash prize of £200 together with a shield and cup for his efforts.

It promises to be a very memorable summer for the Music scholar, who will be competing at both the Llangollen International and Urdd National Eisteddfods, after booking his place in the high-profile events with success in qualifying competitions.

He also gave a performance that defied his years to come away with second place from the district round of the Rotary International’s Young Musician of the Year competition, despite competing against older and more experienced opposition.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “This is yet another outstanding achievement from Tegid, who continues to grow with every performance and competition.

“His voice really does have to be heard to be believed, especially from someone so young, and if he continues his rise to prominence at his current rate then there is nothing he cannot accomplish.”
