Music award for Stone pianist

Sally Proudman with her Young Musician of the Year  trophies

A young Stone musician has scooped a top award as part of the Newcastle Music Festival.

Sally Proudman took first prize in the Piano Solo 16 and Under category at the event, which was held in March, and went on in May to win the Senior Trophy for Stoke-on-Trent Young Musician of the Year.

17 year old Sally – a student at Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College studying A levels in Music, Maths and Further Maths – played ‘Rachmaninov Prelude in c# minor’ for both competitions.
