Ten-year-old trombonist excited to join national orchestra

Published

A YOUNG trombonist has been invited to join the National Children’s Orchestra.

Ten-year-old Daisy Hogan was inspired to take up the instrument four years ago after hearing a fellow student at Burgess Hill Girls School play the Looney Tunes theme on a red plastic trombone.

Now Daisy has successfully auditioned to play in the under-tens group in the National Children’s Orchestra (NCO). Throughout the year she will be able to play in regional rehearsals and attend a residential camp, where she will perform with the NCO in concert.

Her mother Rachael Hogan said: “We are so proud of Daisy’s achievement.

“She loves making music but also works very hard at it, so this has shown her that the time she has spent practising has really paid off. We are also very grateful to Burgess Hill Girls for enabling her to experience different instruments and receive first rate tuition from the amazing peripatetic music teachers.”

Daisy said: “I’m really excited to be playing in the NCO. I’m most looking forward to making new friends and playing lots of different types of music on our residential camp.”
