Congratulations to Year 4 percussionist Isabelle, who, at only eight years old, is the youngest Wells pupil ever to have been selected for the elite National Children’s Orchestra. The NCO is Great Britain’s premier symphony orchestra for children, providing young people with a world-class foundation for orchestral performance and musicianship. Hundreds of 7-13 year olds from across the country are brought together, meeting like-minded young musicians and being guided by top professional musicians. As well as creating a safe, stimulating environment in which to explore and enhance their skills and passions, the residential courses also help to broaden the social development of our young musicians. Izzy is joined in the percussion section by fellow junior school pupil, Amelia in Year 6, and by Year 8 student Stan. Well done to all three students – the future of Wells percussion is clearly in good hands!
