International welsh harpist, Catrin Finch, is one of the most accomplished harpists of her generation. Since her inspiration to learn the harp at the age of five, she has been delighting audiences with her performances in the UK and worldwide. Her rise to prominence started almost immediately. From achieving the highest mark in the UK for her Grade 8 exam at the tender age of nine, under the guidance of Elinor Bennett, she went on to study at The Purcell School and the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied with Skaila Kanga and received the Queen’s Award for the most outstanding student of her year. In 2000 – 2004, she had the honour of reviving the ancient tradition of Royal Harpist to H.R.H, the Prince of Wales, last held in 1873.

We are delighted to welcome her to The Concert Hall for a solo recital.
