Orchid shows ‘future talent’

A Headington musician showcased impressive skills at an event in London which gives young musicians a chance to shine.

The Future Talent event took place on Wednesday 27th November in the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair.

Orchid (L4) performed in the concert to celebrate her Future Talent Worsley Award acknowledging her potential as a violinist.

It was a fantastic event, with Orchid opening the event as part of a violin quartet performing Telemann’s Concerto for 4 Violins No. 1 in G major TWV 40:201. Orchid and the other performers performed beautifully and professionally in front of 100 distinguished guests, including the founders of the charity, Nicholas Robinson and Katherine, the Duchess of Kent.

The charity supports gifted young musicians from across the UK up to the age of 18 who, due to financial hardship, low aspiration and lack of opportunity would otherwise struggle to realise their full potential. This event was also the charity’s 15th birthday and attendees also heard from two returning alumni who performed and spoke about how the charity changed their lives.

Orchid is performing again, this time as a soloist, at the Future Talent Christmas Concert at St George’s Hanover Square, London, on 19th December 2019 with tickets available on Eventbrite.
