“Catrin has done more than anyone in harp history to bring her instrument to a wider public… ”
International Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, is one of the most accomplished harpists of her generation. She began learning the harp at the age of five, and achieved the highest mark in the UK for her Grade 8, aged only 9. She studied at the Purcell School and the Royal Academy of Music where she won the award for the most outstanding student of the year.
In 2000, H.R.H the Prince of Wales revived an ancient tradition, and appointed Catrin ‘Royal Harpist’, the first time since 1873.
Since then, Catrin has appeared with the world’s top orchestras and recorded for most of the major international recording companies.
This evening’s performance will include music by Debussy, Bach, Hindemith, and traditional Welsh music. Catrin also plans to bring and play her electric harp.
