audition at the end of January, Upper Fifth Former Rachel has been awarded a place with
the National Youth Recorder Orchestra of Great Britain (NYRO). For her
audition, Rachel played pieces on the descant, alto and bass recorders, the
bass being an instrument that she only started to play in January.
In the summer
holidays, Rachel will travel to Weil De Stadt in Germany with other members of
NYRO to join with the German youth recorder group: Landes-Jugend
Blockflötenorchester. This means as well as playing various recorders, Rachel
will have plenty of opportunities to practise her German language skills!
