Violinist gains distinction in LRSM Diploma

October 18, 2018

One of our very talented Upper Sixth musicians has achieved a distinction in the LRSM over the summer, the third diploma in Music Performance of the ABRSM board. The diploma consisted of a 45-minute recital of high-level violin repertoire, accompanied by written programme notes; sight-reading; an oral examination on the musical scores and on the history of the violin and its repertoire. Rosanna is the first St Mary’s girl to reach the Licentiate of the Royal School of Music, the equivalent of a BA in music performance. She has been taught since the age of 5 by her father, who is a violin teacher at the school.
