NYMY21 remains indebted to Nottingham’s Bluecoat Singers, whose support is hugely appreciated. The Bluecoat Singers have been making music together for over twenty years and are pleased to support this competition. This is the fourth time we have sponsored a prize and as last year we will be giving a prize of £250 to one competitor in the semi finals of the competition. There will be a small group from the Singers who will decide and make the presentation at the end of the semi final round. We wish the competition continued success.
