Violinist Georgina Ambler (Y6) and oboist Louis Benneyworth (Y8) have done well in recent auditions:
Georgina successfully auditioned for, and took part in, a prestigious Pro Corda course earlier in the year and has just been accepted to be an Associate Member of the National Children’s Orchestra. Having received positive feedback from the organisers of the orchestra, she will begin with the NCO South-Westerly regional orchestra early this year and meet monthly through the year, culminating in an end-of-year concert.
Louis has been offered a full place in the National Children’s Orchestra Under-13 Orchestra which is a significant achievement given the standard of competition and how few oboes are featured in any one orchestra. He has also recently been invited to join the Somerset County Youth Orchestra with whom he made his debut on 18th December and was offered a place on the advanced course at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Junior Conservatoire.
