Charlie B, a Music Scholar in Remove, made his debut concert with the National Children’s Orchestras of Great Britain, Main Orchestra. He was thrilled to have been selected by audition among some of the UK’s finest 13 and 14-year-old musicians. A capacity audience at Bristol Beacon was treated to spectacular and joyful performances of Britten’s ‘Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra’ and ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ by Mussorgsky/Ravel.

This extraordinary musical teamwork was the result of intensive orchestral training during a week-long Spring Residency. There were also workshops on collaborative composition, musician’s well-being, and elite performance psychology by an Olympic fencing gold medallist!

Charlie reflected, “I feel incredibly lucky to be studying violin with Mr Milone at King’s – I have been given all the tools I needed to make a good contribution and to really enjoy the musical challenges of NCO.”
