Global High Scorers’ Concert in November

We are delighted to share with you our third Global High Scorers’ Concert on 14 November. High Scorers’ Concerts are such a familiar part of the ABRSM world. For many years, they have provided opportunities for communities to come together and celebrate the achievements and talents of their musicians as they develop and progress. In so many ways, our virtual Global High Scorers’ Concerts are no different, in connecting people, sharing musical performances and providing inspiration and enjoyment for audience and participants alike.
