Budding stars of the future are being invited to enter a talent contest being organised by a group of Carlton musicians.
The Music Makers Award is aimed at musicians aged between 16-19 who play an instrument or sing to a high standard and live in or are educated in Nottinghamshire.
The contest is organised annually by Carlton Male Voice Choir who decided it wanted to strengthen its links with young musicians locally and give them the opportunity to display their talents.
The winner of the contest will win a cash prize and will also get the opportunity to play with the choir during a performance at Albert Hall in Nottingham next year.
Rick Morrish, from the choir, said: “Thanks to sponsors John and Sue Brydon, the prize for 2018 has been increased to £1,000 and the choir looks forward to the winner appearing at its showpiece Festival Concert at the Albert Hall on 28th April.
