Vasudha Chosen for National Children's Orchestra
Tuesday, 11 December 2012
Thirteen year old Vasudha Marthi from Bolton School Girls' Division has been asked to join the National Children's Orchestra. A thrilled Vasudha said: "It is a great privilege and I am honoured to be chosen. I have been playing the clarinet for 5 years and I am amazed to be one of only a handful of children chosen for this national orchestra. I currently play with the Bolton School Concert Band and the Rochdale Concert Band. I am going to really enjoy playing at some famous venues."
Vasudha has been offered a full membership place for a 12 month period. The Under 13 Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra for children up to the age of 13. It offers children their first taste of performing in a major UK concert venue and Vasudha will enjoy two 9-day residential courses, one at Easter and one in the Summer, where she will be taught by the very best teachers and musicians and she will get to play in a number of prestigious venues including the Royal Festival Hall in London and the Birmingham Symphonic Hall.
Her Music teacher, Miss Fiona Berry, said: "It is an outstanding achievement. In all my time at Bolton School I have not known of another girl who has made it into the NCO. We are all delighted for Vasudha."
