Rosie Lavery, a student of The Academy of Sacred Music since it's inception, has been chosen as the RSNO Young Ambassador for the Glasgow area.
Following her recent solo role for The Academy of Sacred Music - alongside a professional trio and acclaimed counter-tenor, Malcolm Bennett - in a performance of Arvo Part's Stabat Mater, in Glasgow, Rosie is delighted to be engaged in this role for the RSNO.
Having recently attended a deeply moving performance by the RNSO, A French Feast, Rosie commented on the rich vein of beauty within the Programme, and the subtle and perfectly-balanced performance of the Orchestra, which, as she put it: “had the effect of raising the spirit of all in attendance”.
The power of music to convey beauty reflects one of the founding principles of The Academy of Sacred Music and we are therefore delighted that she has been chosen to engage a new generation of young people in Glasgow in the activities of such a distinguished Orchestra.
We have no doubt that this can only benefit Rosie, and The Academy, given that she will have the opportunity to experience, in close quarters, the preparation and performance of some of the most beautiful music ever written.
