Following our Vision, The Colne Philharmonic Orchestra have been very privileged to perform with many talented people over the past 30+ years.
We are proud to introduce our Soloists for our 2020 season below:
Annemarie Federle is a 17 year old student from Cambridge, studying at Hills Road Sixth Form College for A-Levels in Music, Chemistry and Maths.
She started the horn at the age of 7 taught by Christian Rutherford, and is now learning with Richard Watkins. She was principal horn of the National Youth Orchestra for two years, playing under world-class conductors such as Sir Mark Elder and Marin Alsop.
Last year, she was selected as a reserve member of the European Union Youth Orchestra.
Annemarie was a member of Aldeburgh Young Musicians and Britten Sinfonia Academy for three years; she also regularly plays with Junior Prime Brass, a local brass dectet.
Annemarie has gained a reputation in the Cambridge music scene and often plays with Cambridge college orchestras.
