Shrewsbury School

Music Scholar Greta offered place at 3 top Music Colleges

Tuesday 8 January 2019

Congratulations to Music Scholar Greta Roberts (M U6), who has received offers to study Harp at three of the UK's most prestigous music colleges - the Royal College of Music in London, the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and the Royal Northern College of Music.

"This represents a massive achievement on Greta's behalf, and the many hours practice she has put in finally paid off with this wonderful success," said Director of Music John Moore. "She studies jointly with Professor Ieuan Jones at the Royal College of Music, and our own harp teacher at Shrewsbury, Penny-Robin Riddering. Greta is herself from Wales, as is Ieuan, and she looks set to carry on the great tradition of outstanding Welsh harpists who have become some of the country's finest exponents of the instrument.

"Huge congratulations to Greta and her teachers, and all who have supported her in preparing for her auditions."
