Music scholarship concert celebrates Loughborough talent

LU Arts is set to host a concert celebrating four of the best Loughborough University student musicians who have been awarded the prestigious Music Scholarship.

Taking place on Wednesday 3 May at the University’s Cope Auditorium, the annual recital aims to showcase the musical talent at the University.

Each year, LU Arts selects a handful of the most talented students, following a rigorous application process and live audition, to receive the annual Music Scholarship award of £500 towards their ongoing musical development.

The winners of the 2016-17 Music Scholarships are:

  • George Rossouw, a drummer studying Aeronautical Engineering who has performed professionally as part of jazz bands, orchestras, and on stages across the country.
  • Frederic Cazals, a cellist studying Aeronautical Engineering. Frederic obtained the Certificate of Musical Studies in 2014 at the Conservatory of Aix en Provence, France and has performed at the Oxford Cello School, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Resound, and Campus Musicus in Switzerland and Hungary.
  • Jieye Qin, a pianist studying for a PhD in Economics who performs regularly at the Trinity Methodist Church in Loughborough, and in 2015 performed soprano at the Festival of Church Music at Westminster Central Hall, London.
  • Han Ye, a pianist studying Mathematical Finance, who obtained Piano Grade 9 at China’s Central Conservatory of Music and has performed at Shanghai University, as well as providing music tutoring to children with autism.

Nick Slater, Director of Arts at Loughborough, commented: “We are committed to the development of outstanding musical talent from the University through this scholarship and performance. The concert will be an exciting opportunity to hear the talent that exists at Loughborough performing live across a range of styles.”

The Music Scholarship concert takes place at the University’s Cope Auditorium on Wednesday 3 May at 12:30pm. Booking is not required and all are welcome to attend.
