Last year’s Young Musician Best Brass winner Ben Kirkwood

Winner of the 2013 Primary Young Musician Best Brass Award congratulates another Highfields winner in this year’s contest.

Trumpet player Ben Kirkwood, now in Form 6 at Highfields, blew his way to victory in the 2013 contest against a tough field of brass players, both trumpet and cornet, winning the Best Brass Cup 2013.  Ben has been playing the trumpet since Year 3 and also plays the piano and he has gained a Musical and Academic Scholarship to Lincoln Minster.

“Winning was a great shock but a nice one, although it was all down to hard work”, says Ben.
