Virtuoso Violinists

04 December 2009

Congratulations go to Kiyam Lin (Division) and Roberto Ruisi (Upper Middle) who have both been selected to play with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. This is an incredible achievement; to gain one of only 40 places the boys had to compete with hundreds of other violinists, many from specialist music schools. For Kiyam, this is the second year in a row he has achieved this feat and Roberto becomes the youngest violinist in the prestigious orchestra. Another pupil who has achieved musical success recently is Grant McWalter (Sixth) who sang Handel\'s Messiah as part of a massive youth chorus at the Royal Albert Hall in London during the BBC Proms.
