Year 13 student Eva Laverty had an extremely busy Autumn Term, travelling around the country to undertake auditions at the major music conservatoires. Eva plays several instruments, but her first study is orchestral percussion. This means that she has to able to play any of the myriad instruments found in the percussion section of the orchestra, from triangle to timpani, glockenspiel to marimba).
A member of APS Concert Orchestra for many years as well as Haringey Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra and Percussion Group, we are delighted that Eva’s years of consistent hard work, resilience, creativity, organisation and positive attitude have rewarded her with multiple offers from conservatoires including Birmingham Conservatoire of Music, Royal Welsh College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Additionally, she has been awarded an annual scholarship for the duration of her course, which she will start in September 2020.
