British School Muscat student wins the Brass Award at the Young Musician of the Gulf competition
British School Muscat student Tanuj Oundhakar gave a stunning performance on the French Horn to win the Brass Award in the Young Musician of the Gulf Competition last week. She was one of 87 entrants from 22 different schools across the Gulf. She made it to the semifinals as a vocalist, and won the overall Brass Award for her performance that was filmed at British School Muscat.
Hosted by St Christopher’s School in Bahrain since 1998, the Young Musician of the Gulf is an annual “celebration of young musical talent in the Gulf, and has since become a most prestigious and high-profile competition in the region,” reads the competition’s website.
The competition welcomes all formations consisting of talented musicians from across the Gulf. This year, due to COVID-19, the competition held virtual performances, showcasing only solo musicians.
