The Ashford Award

Marie (2)

The Ashford Award is for the most promising flautist of the year. This Award was established in 2013 by the daughter and granddaughter of John Ashford, a talented flautist who had to give up his place at the Royal College of Music for health reasons, but who continued to be passionate about the instrument, playing it throughout the rest of this life.

In 2015 the Award was won by Marie from London.  Read more about Marie
