‘A Little Bite Music’ at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on 7th July

Harpist Louise Thomson

Harpist Louise Thomson – a Making Music Recommended Artist for the season 2018-2019 – is delighted to perform a lyrical lunchtime selection of music, including pieces by Debussy and Tchaikovsky, in the Bridgewater Hall’s free ‘A Little Bite Music’ series this summer. Her recital, in the foyer of the hall, is at 12.30pm on Friday 7th July.

A versatile and experienced musician, Louise’s playing has taken her to prestigious concert venues around the UK including the Royal Albert Hall and St David’s Hall in Cardiff. It has also given her the opportunity to perform with some of the country’s most respected ensembles: the Hallé Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra and Manchester Concert Orchestra. She has been invited to perform live on BBC Radio 3, and made her television debut performing live on BBC 1 for the Heaven and Earth show with soprano Katherine Jenkins.

Some of Thomson’s notable successes include winning the Harp Finals at the world renowned Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales Competition in 2003 and performing as a Finalist in the London International Harp Competition in 2005. In April 2007 she was short-listed to audition for HRH The Prince of Wales for the position of Royal Harpist at Clarence House and performed for HRH Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh at The Royal Variety Performance in the same year.
