A young violinist is celebrating after coming second in the regional final of a music competition.

Tek Hong Chung - who is a year 12 pupil at De Aston School in Market Rasen - came second in the regional final of the Rotary Young Musician Competition held in York.

Tek - who played in the instrumental category - secured a place in the regional heat after winning the district final held in Lincoln earlier this year.

De Aston School head of music Hilary Waterfall was impressed with Tek’s performance.

She said: “The standard was extremely high from the very first performer.

“While the judges were making their final decision, members of the audience were commenting that three performers in particular were outstanding and the winner could be any one of those.”

Ms Waterfall said Tek had done remarkably well to make it to this stage of the competition after 1,850 club competitions and 29 district finals.

The competition aims to give young people an experience of performing on a public stage, to showcase musical talent and be assessed by experienced adjudicators.
