Garland Music Competition “The Garland”
The Garland Music Competition has been an annual event since 1977. The Hon. Sir Victor Garland KBE and his wife, Lady Lyn Garland, have encouraged enthusiasm for the performance of Music at Hale School, through the annual award of a cash prize for the winners in an open competition. The aim, as in all aspects of School Music, is to encourage boys to practice hard to attain a high standard and to give the opportunity for public performance. The Garland Music Prize and Trophy is awarded to the most outstanding performance of the competition.
