Congratulations to St Joseph’s pupils Torin Gillies (Y11) and both Cathryn and Charlotte Nuta (Year 8) for successfully auditioning for National Youth Music Groups.
Torin has been awarded a place in the Senior Choir section of the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain. The NCCGB Senior Choir is for boys with changed voices and girls aged 15+, who meet twice a year for residential courses. The group works as an SATB choir and also separately as Girls’ and Boys’ choirs, studying repertoire from madrigals to modern. Torin is currently working towards his Grade 7 singing exam.
Cathryn and Charlotte Nuta have both been awarded places in the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain. The National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain came into being in 2004 for the most gifted and talented children in the country aged between 8 and 14 years who play a brass instrument. Cathryn plays the Tenor Horn and is working towards her Grade 7. Charlotte plays the Cornet and is working towards her Grade 6. Both girls will be joining Holly Whale (also in Year 8), who also plays Euphonium in the NCBBGB.
Very well done to you all!
