This is gorgeous! You've caught all the warm tones brilliantly. It must have been quite difficult because of the low light levels - brilliant!

A very difficult subject to photograph, or more to the point a great subject in difficult circumstances: there is always a music stand, another musician or a conductor in the way! But you have produced a fine study nonetheless, choosing an excellent angle along the instrument right from the scroll to the performer's face.

As this is a performance study not a formal portrait the eyes are bound to be on the music, so that element is spot-on. I think the tones are great, too. I might be tempted to crop a little off the right, to de-centralise the face slightly, but definitely not off the left as the pew end gives context and explanation. A very impressive image in my view.
Bill

lovely tones...I find the end of the pew a little distracting but a crop would probably unbalance the portrait

well done --- is `Head Photographer' a new school title? Smile
