Rachel wins a place with the NYRO!

Following an 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!

Congratulations Rachel!
