Three of our students had the honour of meeting Julian Lloyd Webber at the Music Education Conference in Grantham. Members of the Lincolnshire Youth String Chamber Orchestra performed to a full room of teachers and other music professionals before having the opportunity to listen to Julian, now Principal of Birmingham Conservatoire, speak about his passion for music and the importance of music education in schools. Vanessa Ankude and Raashi Padhiyar are violinists in the ensemble and Oliver Jones is the pianist - he was featured as a soloist in one of the pieces.
