Competition Prize


The annual Cork City Music College Finals took place in March in the Midleton Park Hotel, an excellent venue that helped to bring out the best performances from our students.  The CCMC competitions are open to all students of the college with various categories available from under 10 to over 17.  This year’s adjudicator was Mr Liam Walsh, a Waterford-based brass performer and conductor who has conducted and performed with many operatic, orchestral, choral and chamber music groups throughout Ireland.  In addition Liam presents regular radio shows and is involved in advertisement production and voice overs.  Liam was a very popular adjudicator who encouraged and congratulated each student that performed on the day and made a special effort to show our younger students how to bow and accept applause!
