On Sunday 1st March, five of our young musicians – Amelia Snell, saxophone, Neil Murray, cello, Breagha Parr and Yasmine Tasker, violin and Faye Hope Hawkins, clarinet – took part in the launch of Newark Young Sinfonia. This is a new orchestra for young musicians who want orchestral experience and is open to all enthusiastic players in the Newark area. Our head of music, Ms Rowan Cozens, is one of the founding members along with other music teachers, Lizzie Greeley, Neil Wright, Peter Higgins and Malcolm Goodman. Over 80 children from 25 schools in the area have joined the orchestra. Highfields School will host the next rehearsal on Sunday April 19th.
