Henry KennedyOne of our top young Music Scholars, Henry Kennedy (I IV), has won a place in the prestigious National Youth Wind Ensemble, playing the saxophone and clarinet.

He will be spending a week with the orchestra in the Easter holidays at Queenswood School in Hatfield, during which time he will be performing in two concerts.  He will then be touring with the orchestra in the Far East, with performances in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.

Last year, Henry made it into The National Children's Wind Orchestra, competing with children across the country for the one place for a baritone saxophone in the orchestra. 

Henry has also recently been part of the band of talented pupils who were the instrumentalists for 'What you Will', Shrewsbury School's latest home-grown musical.
