Saturday 14 April 2012

Henry playing at Birmingham Town Hall in March 2012Henry Thomas (Ch 3) was thrilled to hear that he will be playing his trumpet for The Queen as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be attending a Diamond Jubilee lunch at Westminster Hall on Tuesday 5th June, where they will be joined by The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain will perform a programme of music at the lunch.  Henry is one of only six trumpeters in The National Children’s Orchestra, and he is one of our 8 pupils who have recently got their Grade 8 exams with Distinction, and he scored an impressive 134/150.

Please see for more information about the celebrations on 5th June, which finish in a 60-gun salute from The King's Troop during the carriage procession from Westminster Hall to Buckingham Palace, where there will be a balcony appearance and an RAF Flypast.
