Woodbridge School pupil William Emery is celebrating a string of successes after achieving multiple awards for his young musical talent, including securing a place in the National Youth Orchestra.
William, who is currently in year 11 aged 15, plays the viola at Grade 8. After achieving a series of local awards, including the Suffolk Festival Senior String Champion Music Committee Cup and Woodbridge School’s prestigious Louise Livett Trophy, William’s talent was recognised nationally and he has been offered the significant honour of playing with the National Youth Orchestra.
William was presented with his awards at the school’s Gala Concert, held at the Seckford Theatre earlier this month.
Woodbridge School headmaster, Neil Tetley, said: “William is an excellent musician and the school is supporting him as much as we can in furthering his potential. We are all very proud of his achievement in being selected for the National Youth Orchestra, which is a huge accolade.”
