Rebecca with the trophy after her Festival Concert performance.

The tenth winner of the Trophy in our centenary year is eighteen year old Rebecca Stafford, who started playing the piano when she was six. Rebecca pays tribute to Angela Smith, who has taught her piano throughout those twelve years. We are delighted that Rebecca will be performing for us this evening as she is currently very busy studying for her A Levels as well as working towards her Grade 8 piano examinations in June. Rebecca intends to take a year out before hopefully going to university to pursue her musical ambitions. We all wish her the very best for the future.
