Musical success for Richard


11 January 2016

Many congratulations to second year student Richard Walsh who has not only been accepted for the third time as Double Bassist for the National Youth Orchestra of Wales but also to three top music colleges with scholarship offers at all. 

Richard who joined the college from Shrewsbury School this year to finish his A level studies in Geology and Biology is also taking both AS and A2 Music in one year. 

Currently studying on the weekend under Richard Lewis from the Birmingham Conservatoire, Richard has been offered places at Birmingham, The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. He hopes to take up a place at The Royal Northern and to make a career playing professionally in orchestras.
