Sandbach student hits the right notes
And after getting through two auditions on Saturday Matthew has been successful in reaching the Percussion Final, which will be televised in March.
If he gets through the percussion final then he will go on to compete in the semi-final of the prestigious contest.
It is even more of an achievement given that Matthew is only 14 and the upper age limit for the national competition is 18.
Matthew is the timpanist/percussionist at the Halle Youth Orchestra.
