Final of Bath Young Musician

Prior Park musicians Christie Yau (violin) and, now ex-student, Rosalie Luff (French horn) represented us in the Final of this year’s Bath Young Musician.

Both performed demanding solo programmes completely from memory with great confidence; Christie played challenging Lutoslawski and passionate Tchaikovsky, and Rosalie played the Franz Strauss Horn Concerto.

In a very close field this year’s 1st place went to an outstanding saxist, but the standard of soloist in this annual event is always outstandingly high and it’s remarkable that Prior Park has had at least one soloist in the finals so many times over the past 20 years. Indeed the College has carried off the cup four times!
