HUGE congratulations to Tom Bentley, one of our year 12 musicians.  Tom is an exceptionally gifted young man and is currently studying at the Junior RNCM in Manchester every Saturday.  In December Tom was successful in his audition for the world renowned Hallé Youth Orchestra and will join the Orchestra in 2019.

The Hallé Youth Orchestra offers outstanding young instrumentalists aged 13-19 years, who love orchestral music and the buzz of contributing to a large orchestra, the chance to experience playing in a full symphony orchestra supported by professional musicians.

The Hallé Youth Orchestra meets regularly on Sunday afternoons during autumn and spring terms. Each summer, members enjoy a residential course and tour, alternating between UK and Europe, with visits in recent years to Italy, Dublin, Prague, Germany, Scotland and Lake Garda in Italy.  Their next tour will be to Barcelona.

Congratulations Tom! We’re so proud of you and your achievements.
