Edward Hou holding his Wind Prize Certificate, adjudicated by musician Paul Saunders

At Shrewsbury School this spring nearly 50 pupils took part in the annual Wind Prizes, adjudicated by celebrated clarinettist, saxophonist and flutist Paul Saunders. Saunders plays regularly in the West End on Wicked and has recently been appointed as Multi instrumental Consultant at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and this year awarded nine Wind Prizes to various musical talents across Shrewsbury School’s year groups.

Pippa’s Guardians would like to congratulate Edward Hou on his success; Edward is currently studying in the 4th form and is looked after and supported in his musical endeavours by Regional Manager Helen Edginton. Edward was awarded the Highly Commended Prize for his saxophone piece, and has since upgraded his saxophone to a Yanagisawa AW01 to continue improving upon this achievement.

Well done Edward!
