Harpist/Pianist studying at the Royal College of Music. Available for freelance orchestral work, weddings, events and private tuition.
Very pleasant young lady. Talented harpist with a wide repertoire.
It was great having Bethan play with us. She was punctual, professional and extremely enthusiastic, which makes a huge difference for an amateur orchestra such as ours. Bethan is a very talented harpist and hopefully we can work with her again.
Bethan began playing harp aged 10 and since then has performed in various venues across the UK and Europe both as a soloist and as part of ensembles. Bethan achieved her ABRSM performance diplomas in both harp and piano in 2013. As a keen competitor in Eisteddfods, she has won many awards such as 2nd prize at the Urdd Eisteddfod instrumental solo and 1st prize in the National Eisteddfod Harp Solo as well as being chosen as a finalist in the prestigious Blue Riband competition. In 2016 Bethan was awarded the Nansi Richards Scholarship for harpists. Bethan has been principal harpist in North Wales Youth Orchestra since 2010 and has performed with many other orchestras across North Wales, the North West and London including NEW Sinfonia and Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra. This has given Bethan the opportunity to perform in many prestigious venues such as Royal Festival Hall, Buckingham Palace, Cadogan Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and Bridgewater Hall Manchester as well as working with world renowned conductors such as Bernard Haitink and Diego Masson. Bethan was awarded the Chester Music Society Award for Young Musicians which enabled her to attend the Suonarte Masterclasses in Italy with Emanuela Degli Esposti and Ieuan Jones. She has since participated in masterclasses with many acclaimed musicians such as Sylvain Blassel, Marisa Robles, Claire Jones, Isabelle Perrin, Catrin Finch and Jana Bouskova. Bethan was awarded a First Class Honours Degree from the Royal College of Music in 2017 where she was the 2016 recipient of the RCM Harp Prize. She is now an Ashley Family Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music studying for her Master of Performance degree.
