Composing Success for Talented Alex Watson
Bedford School Lower Sixth Former Alex Watson was recently selected as one of the 32 finalists in the Young Composers’ Competition. This prestigious competition awards and recognises talented young composers from across the world. This year, over 2000 composers under the age of 25 entered an orchestral score which means Alex’s finalist position places him into the top 2% in the world. This is an incredible achievement especially given the age span of the competition.
Alex has been composing music for around three years and also studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance every Saturday. At Bedford School he is studying Music, Music Tech, English and German at A-Level and is currently looking at music universities to attend after sixth form.Published: February 28 2018
