Published Wednesday 18th of January 2012 11:58:57 AM

After such a busy musical term at Gresham's Prep School, it is very exciting to learn that at the end of last term two Year 8 pupils achieved success at a national level.

Head Chorister Henny Hovenden has been accepted by the National Youth Choir of Great Britain to join their Girls' Choir in 2012. Henny, who is a member of all 3 senior choirs at the Prep School (Chapel Choir, Jiminies & Chamber Choir) has singing lessons with former Director of Music at Gresham's Elisabeth Rooke, and is a frequent soloist in concerts in and around Norfolk. She also studies cornet with Lynne Roberts and is involved with many of the sports teams at Gresham's.

George Jefford is also a very keen sportsman and has just been accepted into the National Children's Wind Orchestra for 2012. Despite only being in Year 8, George is working on grade 8 ABRSM repertoire on clarinet, trumpet AND piano. He is prinicipal clarinettist in the school orchestra but especially enjoys playing guitar in his rock band - one of 14 pupil-led rock bands at Gresham's Prep School.
