AESS Music Festivals Trophy

AESS Music Festivals Trophy

In its Centenary Year of 2013, the AESS inaugurated a special trophy and a £25 prize to be presented at ten National Federation of Music Festivals. Currently, the age group is for singers who present a song and a spoken element in the age range 13 to 18. The last year for this arrangement is 2017. After this time, the prize will be put out to tender again and the age range may be broadened.
