Helen hits the right note.

A TALENTED horn player from Dunchurch made all the right noises to be selected for the National Youth Brass Band.

Helen Kinder, aged 17, of Bilton Lane, has taken one of six coveted baritone horn places in the band and is now preparing for a training course over Easter.

The Rugby High School pupil, who passed her music GCSE a year early, will spend six days in Bradford with the band, ahead of a 50th anniversary gala concert in Bradford on Saturday, March 30.

Helen said: "I was short-listed in October and then I had to wait while they went around the country auditioning. I was surprised, I wasn't expecting to get in, but I was very chuffed."

Helen will take music A-level and is considering a career in music.
