Vocalist Sophie Springham won the musical theatre category with her interpretation of Burn from Hamilton.

Pianist Kieren Mok took the classical title playing Clair de Lune by Debussy.

The pop crown went to Lucas Berry for his performance of Tornado of Souls by Megadeth on electric guitar.

A spokeswoman said: "It was a wonderful evening of music and the performances were outstanding. The range of talent on display was inspiring and the final included solo performances on clarinet, flute, piano, saxophone, voice, cello, heavy metal guitar and drum kit. We would like to thank all students who entered the competition, the quality of entries made deciding on the overall finalists exceedingly difficult."
