2021 has been a busy year for Year 10 student Scott Du. He recently passed the ATCL Piano examination with distinction, which follows his achievement in the Grade 7 Trumpet examination, which he also passed with distinction. Scott was the winner of the Read Wheeler Cup for Outstanding Junior Musicianship (which he is holding in this photograph) at the Cultural Awards ceremony earlier this term and was the recipient of a Palmerston North Youth Council Arts Scholarship. Scott is part of the Piano group the Liszt Fan Club, who won the New Zealand Music Award at the Manawatū District Chamber Music competition and the Strings Attached trio, who were Highly Commended in the same event. Both of these groups performed at the Registered Music Teachers Chamber Music Competition, placing first and second respectively in the elite trio section.
