Highlights for 2010

Tianhong Yang and the RWCMD Orchestra

Pianist Tianhong Yang, a first-year International Student at Royal Welsh College, will make her debut at St David’s Hall on 22 June, playing with the RWCMD Symphony Orchestra.

Tianhong, from Wuhan, China, became the College’s first Steinway Scholar this year and is joint winner of the RWCMD Concerto Trials.

‘Tianhong is one of our most gifted students,’ says Richard McMahon, Head of Department for Keyboard. ‘Her achievement in winning the prestigious concerto prize in her very first term in college is quite without precedent!’

He goes on, ‘The Beethoven concerto is a wonderful, dramatic piece and a perfect opportunity for her to display her formidable technique and expressive playing. ‘

This final symphonic concert of the academic year presents three accessible and popular masterpieces: Tchaikovsky’s Overture to Romeo and Juliette, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.3 and Stravinsky’s Petrushka.
