Jinah Shim's concert with the London Mozart Players was a musical highlight of the year for all those that attended. The orchestra, and their Associate Conductor Hilary Davan Wetton, were on sparkling form and Jinah's big, warm sound filled the hall at Tonbridge School. The trumpet soloist Paul Archibald played impeccably and the orchestra were clearly keen to support Jinah.
Please look out for more details of the Recital Prize Concert coming soon, featuring Freddie Hand and Alex Robson.
