Essex Young Musician of the Year – 2024

Seen above, amongst a dazzling group of young Essex musicians, we are very pleased to find Owen Romhany, a multi-talented performer, who has been associated with the Cathedral Music Department for several years, and is currently a member of the Cathedral choir.

Owen, recently played at  a  lunchtime recital in the Cathedral, with Sophia Assitzoglou (violin) and Stephen King (organ), where he demonstrated his skill with both the trombone and the cello … see details.

He was recently awarded the Academic Award at the Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama; and he was also offered a place to study trombone next year at the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and was also awarded a scholarship at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Owen has also been offered a place at Durham University to read Theology, and has been awarded the Durham University Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for music.

As a pupil at Brentwood School, he was also fortunate to hold a scholarship and a bursary, and to have achieved Grade 8 in Trombone, Cello and Voice.
