Cornwall Music Festival
HUNDREDS of performers of all kinds have displayed their talents in this year's Cornwall Music Festival.
More than 800 participants passed through the doors of Truro Methodist Church for the competition and Jane Fletcher, one of the organisers, said the standard of music and performance had been fantastic this year, with some heart-stopping moments.
"The senior schools choral class was excellent," she said.
"They came from all over the county and performed some beautiful renditions. We also had virtuoso double bass playing from Edward Francis-Smith from West Penwith."

Mrs Fletcher said another highlight of the week-long event was an evening of performances from local choirs on Friday featuring Mabe Ladies' Choir, Tresillian Singers, St Stithians Male Voice Choir, the City of Truro Male Choir and Kea Notes from the village of Kea.
A gala concert took place on Saturday evening in which winners of each individual category had a chance to shine.
The award for the outstanding musician of the year went to 16-year-old pianist Toby Comeau, a Truro School pupil.
"He's a very talented young man," said Mrs Fletcher.
She thanked all the volunteers who helped to make the festival a success and Truro City Council which donated £1,000 towards the cost of running the event.
