On the 27th June, we were delighted to host a visit from the leading international clarinettist, Michael Collins. 

Michael gave a stunning lunchtime concert to a packed Recital Hall and it became clear very quickly why the Sunday Times commented that he ‘dazzles like a Bel Canto Diva’ as he made light work of the virtuoso passagework in works by Giampieri and Lovreglio. 

In the afternoon Michael worked with our students in a serious of inspiring masterclasses.  Matthew Glendening from year 10 commented that ‘it was a wonderful afternoon.  The recital was excellent and I found the masterclass extremely enjoyable and useful due to the detail he injected into the music.  I will continue to work on the tips he gave me.’
