Dominic Longhurst to play abroad


While most students hope to engage in work experience opportunities during their candidatures, Dominic Longhurst is widening his horizons early by doing things in reverse. Already well regarded as a trumpet, cornet and flugelhorn player, Dominic, who will commence studying for a 4-year music degree in the United Kingdom in September, has been invited to play in Norway and Britain in the lead-up to the course.

A former student of Newington College, Dominic etched his name in the Sydney Eisteddfod record books in 2011 by winning the open age, 18 & under and 15 & under Brass Instrument Solos in the space of three-and-a-quarter hours. The Sydney Eisteddfod team remembers him well, and convinced he has what it takes to reach the top, wish him every success in his musical adventures.
