Emily Sun Strings Workshop

World renowned violinist Emily Sun facilitated a strings Masterclass with the Preparatory String ensemble students on Wednesday 31st August. We were thrilled to hear her insights into technique, dynamics and stylistic characteristics and thank our performers David, Ryan, Adam, Isaac and Jude and Ms Welsh for her accompaniment for this event.

Emily is a Violin Professor at the Royal College of Music, London and plays a 1760 Nicolo Gagliano violin, loaned to her through the Beare’s International Violin Society. She is also the winner of numerous awards including the Tagore Gold Medal from the Royal College of Music, the 2018 ABC Young Performers Award (Australia), the 2016 Royal Overseas League Music Competition (UK), and the Brahms (Austria), Yampolsky (Russia) and Lipizer (Italy) international violin competitions. It was an absolute honour to welcome Emily to the Preparatory School and this will be a Masterclass the boys and staff will remember for a lifetime
