Brentwood Student to lead the National Schools Symphony Orchestra

Since first picking up a Violin aged 4, Andrew Liddell, who is currently studying his A Levels, has recently been titled the new Leader of the National Schools Symphony Orchestra. With future ambitions of being a professional musician, Andrew introduced the first Brentwood School Lunchtime Chamber Concert on Friday 30th September, and performed with other student instrumentalists for staff and peers to enjoy.

Andrew has been a part of the National Schools Symphony Orchestra for six years, as well as the Essex Young People’s Orchestra, and is very excited to have been given the leading role this year.

“I’m most looking forward to getting to know all the musicians on a personal level, not just seeing them perform,” he said. “I can’t wait to learn from other musicians around me.” 

When asked how he plans to balance his school work with this new venture, he stated, “the orchestra is a one-off performance, and when I’m performing I want to give 100%. That’s the same with my studies; so I try to focus on one thing at a time and give them both my all.”

We wish Andrew all the best with his musical career!
