A talented Lynn violinist is celebrating after winning a prestigious music award.

Lynn Academy student Alastair Legg, 14, has won The Frances M L Willden and Margaret D Willden Prize for the year ending December 2013 from The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

The annual award is made to the Norfolk violin student obtaining the highest marks in grade eight violin examination during the preceding 12 months.

Alastair said: “I am thrilled to receive this award in recognition of my recent exam, and would like to thank my teacher, Mr David Montgomery, who has taught me violin since I started playing music at the age of nine.

“I hope it will help me with my plans to study music at college in the future.”

Alastair is currently the youngest member of the locally based Norfolk Symphony Orchestra and he regularly plays in the Norfolk County Youth Orchestra.

Lynn Academy principal Craig Morrison said: “We couldn’t be prouder of Alastair’s achievement and fully support his aspirations for the future”.
