The annual Bardi Young Musician concert series is relaunched for 2022. These concerts are intended to encourage emerging and talented young soloists by giving them a platform on which to perform with a full symphony orchestra.

The Bardi Symphony Orchestra is delighted to announce that 18 year old French horn player, Francesca Penny, has been selected as Bardi Young Musician 2022. Francesca was chosen following a selection process which culminated in a round of auditions last autumn. A student at Wigston College she has been playing the French Horn since she was 8 and studies with her Father, French Horn player Mark Penny. She currently plays with the Rutland Sinfonia, Bardi Wind Orchestra and is also a member of the CBSO Youth orchestra in Birmingham. Francesca is currently studying for A levels and considering further study and career options in either music, or her other main interest which is modern dance.
