As a talented viola player, she is in great demand and performs with the Crescendo Orchestra, String Orchestra and Senior Strings Chamber Ensemble at school; she is also a key member of the South Powys Youth Orchestra. Carys also plays the piano and sings in the Chapel Choir. A true Music Scholar indeed!
