A multi talented young musician has won a new award in honour of a famous composer.
Sam Aldersey-Williams has been chosen to receive the Britten Centenary Award at Gresham's School in Holt - a senior school bursary marking 100 years since the birth of its old boy Benjamin Britten, and given to a youngster showing a good standard of piano playing.
Sam, 13, from Aylsham is working towards his grade eight at classical piano, but is also grade four at the church organ and learning jazz piano.
And his musical talents also extend to seeking a grade seven at trombone and grade six at singing.
He is head boy chorister at Gresham's prep school and has performed piano at the school's Auden Theatre, and taken part in the Kings Lynn Festival alongside other participants of Gresham's Britten music course.
