Trumpter Darcie

Fanfare for Darcie

During the October holiday, Year 12 trumpet specialist Darcie played principal trumpet for the English Schools Orchestra of Great Britain, at Cadogan Hall. The complex programme included Brahms Academic Festival Overture, Hindemith Symphonic Metamorphism, Mussorky Pictures of an Exhibition and a new composition by Sebastian Skelly, named 1926, to celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.

Darcie also auditioned for the CBSO Youth Orchestra in the summer, successfully gaining a place, and she is looking forward to the course in February, where she will be playing a new commision, Britten’s Piano Concerto, with Steven Osborne as the soloist, as well as Vaughan Williams’ A London Symphony in Symphony Hall, with Jamie Phillips.
