Maidenhead musician selected by National Youth Orchestra

An aspiring composer has been awarded a place in the National Youth Orchestra for 2014.

Sixth former Molly hopes for a career composing music

Molly Lawes, 18, of St Marks Crescent, secured her place after sending the orchestra a portfolio of her work and impressing in auditions.

The orchestra brings promising young musicians together from across Britain. They hold residencies where the youngsters  compose and perform music.

The Newlands Girls' School sixth former is joining as a composer, with her first residency at Goldsmiths College in London this month.

The A-level student has already won a place to study at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama next year.

She also has auditions for London's Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

The grade-8 piano and flute player hopes for a career in creating music.

Molly said: "I really want to write music for television and film if I'm ever lucky enough."
