Saint Ronan’s School

We are delighted to present the annual Thomas Harris memorial cup at Saint Ronan's, Thomas's prep school in Hawkhurst.  It is presented for the best performance of a classical piece of music and is adjudicated by Thomas Harris’s mother Judy who has donated the cup in memory of her son.

The winner receives a miniature version of the main cup to keep, a hand-drawn certificate, a cash prize, and concert tickets. Needless to say, there is always hot competition for this prize on the day.

In 2018 and 2019 the competition was also adjudicated by the renowned Argentinian pianist, and Judy's friend, Alberto Portugheis. Professor Portugheis has performed with the leading orchestras in over 50 countries and is a highly respected teacher and recording artist.
