Fakenham College student Pippa Trent will be taking to the stage as the soloist at the Anglia Concertante's annual summer orchestral concert.

The concert is on Sunday 22nd June at All Saints' Church, Kings Lynn and will be conducted by Fraser Goulding.

Pippa Trent from Great Ryburgh will perform the Mozart Piano Concerto No 23 in A major. 17-year-old Pippa is studying four A-levels at Fakeham College. She is a piano student of Heather Edwards in Norwich and has achieved great success in her most recent Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music piano performance examinations, gaining distinction for her Grade 7 and achieving the highest marks in the county at that level which lead to her being awarded the Evelyn Rose Phillips Memorial Prize.

Following this she was invited to the Royal College of Music for an individual consultation lesson with resident tutor Nigel Clayton. She gained a merit in her Grade 8 piano performance examination last year and is now studying for her Grade 8 Clarinet with tutor Bonnie Holm.

Pippa said: "I am really excited to be invited as this year's young concerto soloist with the orchestra as it's something I've never had the opportunity to do before and I particularly enjoy this Mozart Piano Concerto. I am really looking forward to the concert and working with Anglia Concertante"

As is customary with Anglia Concertante the programme will also include music by English composers and as this year is the 50th anniversary of the death of Vaughan Williams the orchestra will be performing his English Folksong Suite. Alongside this will also be Elgar's chanson de Matin and de Nuit, Vivaldi Concerto Grosso RV 156 and Schubert's Unfinished Symphony.

Co-founder Claire Clarke said: “We would particularly like to thank all our sponsors for supporting us this year, in particular our main sponsor Pisces Country park at Welney , Cambs and Maxview Ltd who have generously agreed to provide a vehicle in which we can transport the percussion.”

Tickets are available on the door priced £8 and under 16's may enter for free and the concert begins at 3pm. Refreshments will be served. For more details visit the All Saints' website at www.allsaintskingslynn.org.uk or email the orchestra on angliaconcertante@hotmail.co.uk
