Star violinist visits Biggleswade students

January 25, 2012 in News, Public, School content

Rising star violinist Charlie Siem took time out of his busy schedule to drop in on some aspiring musicians at a Biggleswade school.

The 25-year-old visited Stratton Upper School and chatted with the youngsters before giving them their own private performance.

Michael Beasley, head of music at the school, said: “It’s been really inspiring for them to see somebody who is succeeding at such a high level at such a young age.

Councillor Mark Versallion, Executive Member for Children’s Services, added: “Having such an inspirational and talented musician perform for our children is a great coup for Central Bedfordshire.

“I hope that Charlie’s time with Stratton Upper School will inspire and encourage more young people to develop an interest in classical music and indeed to take up playing the violin.”

Many thanks to Inspiring Music teacher Alison Brown for organising this wonderful opportunity for  young violinists in the area.
