We’ll be kicking off our 135th Anniversary year in style with our first special event of 2016 :  Young Stars in Concert with Sheffield Citadel Band.  Our special guests for the evening will be Isobel Daws, trombone and Charlie Green, vocal.  These young people are both very accomplished musicians and we know that a a fantastic musical evening is in store.

Isobel Daws

Isobel Daws

Isobel Daws is 16 years old & she began to play the cornet at the age of 3 with tuition from Maisie Ringham Wiggins, MBE. Under Maisie’s direction Isobel moved to the trombone in September 2008. Six months later Isobel successfully auditioned for a place to study trombone at The Purcell School of Music. where she holds a scholarship under the Government’s Music and Dance Scheme and is now tutored by Rob Workman.

After an extensive audition process, Isobel was thrilled to be chosen as one of the five finalists in the BBC’s Young Musician of the Year 2014 Brass Category Final and in March 2014 she received a Gold Award from the ABRSM for obtaining one of the highest marks in her Grade 8 exam.

Isobel has been a member of The National Youth Brass Band, National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain and was a member of The National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain for four years, three of which she received full scholarships from the Leverhulme Trust for distinction in musicianship and instrumental excellence. In 2015 Isobel was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and was thrilled to play at the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.

 

Charlie Green

Charlie Green

Charlie Green’s baptism into the world of entertainment began at the  age of 3 when he entertained passengers on board a cruise ship with a rendering of the classic ‘New York, New York’. In 2005, at the age of 8, Charlie was invited by the ‘Not Forgotten Association for Ex-Servicemen’ to perform at their annual concert at St James’ Palace, the highlight of his day being an introduction to HRH Princess Anne.

Charlie came to the world’s attention in 2008 when he sang on the popular TV show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. Simon Cowell said “Charlie you are a little star, I really, really like you.”

Charlie is an active member of the Droitwich Spa Salvation Army where he is a member of the Band and also Deputy Songster Leader. Charlie is always eager to share his Christian faith with others and one of the highlights for him in 2015 was performing at London’s O2 Arena at the ‘Boundless Congress’ celebrating The Salvation Army’s 150th Anniversary.

 

On the 27th February, Isobel’s solos will include “The Eternal Quest” and “Brasilia” and amongst Charlie’s numbers will feature “Feeling Good” and “You Raise Me Up”.  You won’t want to miss this fantastic evening so get in touch as soon as possible for your tickets, available at just £5.00 each.  We look forward to seeing you there!
