Before Christmas, Katie in Year 12 successfully auditioned for the National Schools' Symphony Orchestra playing the flute.
In July, she will go to Malvern College in Worcestershire for a week-long course with the orchestra. During the week she will take part in various rehearsals and concerts, including an evening performance in Wells Cathedral in Somerset, and play a variety of pieces including Symphony No.1 by J.Sibelius.
To add to this success, Katie also gained a distinction in her grade 8 harp exam, which she took in early December. Well done Katie!
