New Leader - Alicja Humeniuk

We are delighted to announce that following Laura Brownsell's move away from the West Midlands, Alicja Humeniuk is the orchestra's new Leader.

Alicja is a postgraduate student at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She started her violin studies at the age of 6 at the Szeligowski Music School in Lublin, Poland, and recently obtained a first class Bachelor’s degree at the Conservatoire.

She is passionate about orchestral and chamber playing, and has been selected for both the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Birmingham Royal Ballet training schemes.

You can find a fuller biography by following this link.

We'd like to extend our sincere thanks to Laura who has done such a brilliant job over the past three years. You may have seen Laura playing in November's concert: she wishes to continue her relationship with the orchestra and play with us whenever she can. We, of course, are very happy.
