Henrietta Barnes joined BSO in September 2014. Having had a few years break from playing double bass in orchestras including the Westminster and Kensington Symphonys, Bardi Orchestra, Herts and Covent Garden Chamber Orchestras, she was persuaded to try her hand at Jazz and attended the Len Philips Jazz Summer School in 2013, shortly afterwards joing the Force 10 Big Band and Avery Hill Octet. Moving to Chelsfield Village in 2014 she met two stolwart members of the BSO, David and Helen Griffiths, and is thoroughly enjoying orchestral playing with the most welcoming and friendly BSO. Thanks for taking me in!!
