TWO brothers have come away victorious after taking part in the South Cumbria Music Festival.

Edwin and Edmund Hui, from Grange, both won awards at the South Cumbria Music Festival in Ulverston for Piano.

The South Cumbria Musical Festival was formed in 1976 and has developed over the years to become one of the most respected competitive events in the country.

All aspects of the performing arts are catered for in the many and varied selection of classes in music and speech.

Individuals, schools and groups of all ages and standards can acquire invaluable experience and have the benefit of performing before an audience.

The Mail:

Edwin, 14, won the Matt Butterfield Award and two Top 3 finishes. And Edmund, 18, won The Dryden Cup, Oxley Developments Cup and The Lisa Parkes Shield. Edmund also went on to win the George Nicholls Musician of The Year Award.

Edmund has been playing the piano for 10 years.

"It was quite surrealm" he said. "I didn't expect it at first. To win something like musician of the year is quite a scary title to think about."

Edmund has been competing since 2013 and won multiple awards along the way - but this title is his proudest achievement to date.

The South Cumbria Musical Festival returned in full force this March following a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus crisis.

The Mail:

The 44th running of the festival took place from March 21 until March 26 and was followed by a gala concert on April 1 at St Mary's Church in Dalton.

It is a favourite for music fans both young and old, with many school choirs joining in with the fun.

Jasmine Hui, said she was very proud of both of her children,

"I am very proud," she said. "It is really fun for all involved because music is something the children enjoy you can't force it. 

"Mr Hui and I are very proud. We didn't expect them to get these awards."
