About this event

A very special event, sponsored by the Owen Jenkins Trust, to be held at St Alkmund's.

Young artists are invited to present artwork based on 'Pictures at an Exhibition' by Mussorgsky that will form our own Exhibition here in Shrewsbury.

Then, brilliant young Russian pianist Nikita Lukinov will play the music (with commentary by Jeremy Lund) in a free concert, surrounded by the winning artworks.

Prize winners will be chosen in three age categories (8 – 10, 11 – 13, 14 – 16, ages as on the day) and presented by three specialist judges. Nikita will play a fiery piece to finish the concert, but the pictures will stay in the church until Saturday 6th July on public view.

Anyone – young or old – is welcome to attend the free concert on 30th June. Young artists will be able to choose one four ideas for their entries – your own ideas, please, no need to copy the originals!

Please note that children must get their parents or teachers to apply for them!
