"When my mum said I should enter I thought she was off her rocker"

Posted at 3:58 PM on May 12, 2008 by Gillian Martin

Congratulations to Peter Moore, who won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition yesterday. At 12-years-old, he's the youngest winner ever.

Peter's a trombonist. At this point in his life, he is about the same height as his instrument.

See just how cute he is (sorry, Peter), and read about the runners-up, here. Unfortunately the video only works if you're in the UK.
