Music at Bootham

Congratulations to Ellie Maury, Emily Watson and Sammy Johnson who have all been chosen to be part of the newly formed York Youth Orchestra.  Additional congratulations go to Emily, who, out of 28 flautists nationally, was awarded one of three places with the Manchester-based Hallé Youth Orchestra. She’s the only player selected, who doesn’t attend a Junior Conservatoire. Congratulations, too, to their teacher, Nikki Warrington, for preparing and nurturing these young students in all that they do – thank you!

Well done to Benedict Baily, who participated in a Master Class with Sarah-Jane Bradley, Professor of viola at both the Royal College of Music and Trinity College of Music, London. Benedict hopes to study music at one of the country’s top conservatoires next year. Good luck!
