Schoolboy plays in Queen’s orchestra

The orchestra’s principal director of music Roger Clarkson said it was a ’privilege’ to be involved in such a historic event.

“A truly amazing opportunity for us all,” he said.

“I know that the whole orchestra will join me in saying how honoured and excited we were to be playing for the Queen.

“There are over 100 supremely talented young musicians in our main orchestra and it was a privilege to be involved in it all.”
