Super Talented Matthew Smith is a Grade 5 standard violinist and also plays the guitar, drums, piano and viola.
Incredibly he will take the lead when Nottingham Symphony Orchestra (NSO) play Die Fledermaus at the Royal Concert Hall in the city on April 2.
The concert will make Matthew the world’s youngest conductor – beating the previous record of a 14-year-old boy who directed the Venezuelan youth orchestra.
The schoolboy has been practising with the 75-strong orchestra once a week over the past few weeks and took part in a rehearsal at a local school on this week. Today, Matthew said he can conduct the whole of Johann Strauss’ operetta Die Fledermaus from memory.
People who live nearby must come and see this on April 2!
