I was a member of Ipswich/Suffolk Youth Orchestra, conducted by Miss Bertha Carter and Lawrence Griffiths, which met at Christchurch Girls' School and later at Argyle St Ipswich.
I started Double Bass with Joseph Woolnough at Sir John Leman High in Beccles. Three great years with Suffolk Youth Orchestra including first performance of Britten's Welcome Ode. Memorable joint concerts in Snape & Salford with Salford Youth Orchestra. Since then have played with Essex Symphony Orchestra and bands and orchestras in Great Yarmouth & Waveney. Currently with East Coast Sinfonietta.
