Fanfare for Young Musicians



Thomas Allen (1978-80)

Melvyn Tan (1981-82)


Thames for ITV, 8 November 1978 to 13 December 1982 (35 episodes in 5 series)


To a certain extent, this can seen as ITV's answer to Young Musician of the Year, though this competition was for under-13s only. Unlike the BBC show, this one actually went out as part of children's programming, and allowed soloists, duos and groups to enter. There was also a broader range of musical styles, with singers competing against instrumentalists.


It was apparently devised as a successor to the music-and-chat show Fanfare, hence the title.
