collingham award

Stephanie achieved two A*s and an A in Music, French and Russian.  She joined a CIFE college because it offered a more flexible way of working that could accommodate her musical commitments, notably with the National Youth Orchestra where she is the Leader of the Orchestra and First Violin. She performed at the Proms last year, wowing the packed Royal Albert Hall in a performance of Mahler’s 9th Symphony as well as conducting (YES, conducting!) the orchestra in a contemporary piece by Tansy Davies. Stephanie was also appointed assistant conductor of the National Youth Orchestra.

Just sixteen years old, Stephanie is now studying Music at St John’s College, Cambridge.
