Trumpeter from Orleans Park through to brass finals in BBC Young Musician competition
An Orleans Park pupil has made it through to the category finals of BBC Young Musician competition.
Trumpeter William Thomas will participate in the brass category final on March 7 at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
A BBC film crew visited William Thomas at school last week.
They will use footage of him at Orleans Park for a future televised edition of BBC Young Musician 2014.
William said: “I was very excited but also rather worried about being filmed by the BBC.
“But once the film crew arrived I relaxed and had a great time! I really enjoyed being filmed at Orleans Park in various school activities along with my friends.”
Each category winner will receive a place in the semi-final, which is held at the same venue on March 9.
Three of the semi-finalists will then be selected to go through to the BBC Young Musician 2014 final, which takes place on May 18 at Usher Hall in Edinburgh.
