Rehearsals are well under way for our spring concert featuring the amazingly talented BBC Young Musician Of The Year 2012, Laura van der Heijden. 17 year old Laura has been playing the cello since age 5, obtaining ABRSM grade 8 distinctions in both piano and cello by age ten. She has been performing publically since the age of nine and has picked up prizes and awards including First Prize with distinction at the Swiss National Youth Music Competition, the Marjorie Humby competition at th eYoral Colleg eof Music, the Beckenham Musician of the Year, Esther Coleman Prize and, of course, BBC Young Musician of the Year.

This March she will be performing the Shostakovic cello concerto with HSO in a programme which also features pieces by Sibelius, Respighi and an original work by our very own flautist Nick Salmon. This is surely a concert not to be missed!
