Success for former Music School student

Helen Grime

Former music school student Helen Grime’s composition ‘Fanfare’ launched Sir Simon Rattle’s first London Symphony Orchestra concert at the Barbican on September 14.

This is a tremendous honour for the ex-Broughton student who was commissioned to write the piece to herald the Maestro’s return to the United Kingdom.

Rattle is patron of The City of Edinburgh Music School and has been Principal Conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2002.

Helen was a pupil at TCoEMS from 1990 to 1998.
