New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall won the 64th ROSL Annual Music Competition Overseas Award on Tuesday 15 March and was awarded the £3,000 prize.

Five outstanding musicians from overseas were selected from the Section Finals across all categories of the competition. South African soprano Caroline Modiba, New Zealand pianist and accordionist Eddie Giffney, Australian violist Ann Beilby, Maltese saxophonist Philip Attard and New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall all performed spectacularly in their individual categories, and when brought together proved that the calibre of the Annual Music Competition continues to rise and rise.
