London Mozart Players Introducing Leia

Updated: Oct 4, 2020

3 June 2020 Repost from London Mozart Player In today’s #WeeklyWednesdays video, LMP's Julia Desbruslais introduces a new young talent. Some of you may remember young violinist Leia Zhu when she wowed the audience at our Windsor Castle reception last year, when she was just 12 years old. Leia is the latest in a long line of young musicians to be championed by the LMP. Throughout our 71-year history we’ve supported many young players as they start their professional music careers – including Jacqueline du Pré, Nicola Benedetti and Sheku Kanneh-Mason; while our founder, Harry Blech, launched the Mozart Memorial Prize which, like BBC Young Musician  has given a platform to the musical stars of tomorrow. We also work with Young Classical Artists Trust - YCAT and City Music Foundation who help young musicians build their careers. We are sure that Leia will have an incredible classical music career and we look forward to performing with her at concerts scheduled next year. Here she introduces our 2021 concert series, and you can find out more and hear her play here:
