A Chatteris youngster has completed a musical first for Fenland by being accepted into two prestigious orchestras.

Rosie Scott, who is just 10 years old and attends Lionel Walden Primary School in Doddington, says she is thrilled to have found out that she has been accepted in the under 11’s National Children’s Orchestra with her harp.

She performed a successful audition and faced tough competition in Norwich to get through.

She has also reached a high enough standard on her violin, trombone and harp to be invited to play for the easterlies section of the National Children’s Orchestra held in Cambridge on whichever instrument she chooses.

Rosie lives in Chatteris and attends the Fenland Music Centre, in March on Friday evenings and is taught by her harp teacher Rohan Platts.
