A VIRTUOSO violinist from Solihull School has given a performance fit for a queen.

Thirteen-year-old Charlotte Sasse, who lives in Dorridge, was in the 114-piece National Children’s Orchestra (NCO) that played light classical music during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Lunch at Westminster Hall in London.

The two-hour programme of 22 pieces, which ranged from Walton’s ‘Crown Imperial’ to Badelt’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ was performed in front of the Queen and members of the Royal Family and 700 invited guests.

“She was honoured and thrilled to take part in the event,” said mum Sarah.

Charlotte is also a member of Vivace Strings, the senior string orchestra of Solihull Music Service, and competes regularly in music festivals.

She is currently preparing for the Leamington Spa Competitive Music Festival on Sunday, June 24.
