Sixth Form pupil Adelaide Ho, who was recently awarded the Lloyd Hartley Memorial Prize for grade VIII piano, has had a succession of musical achievements, winning the annual prize twice for high marks in piano examinations in the last three years.
Adelaide’s musical ability extends across a range of classical instruments including the piano, violin and French horn. Taking up the violin at just aged six, Adelaide is now a leading member of the Harrogate Youth String Orchestra and the Harrogate Youth Concert Orchestra.
HLC pupil, Adelaide Ho said: “Receiving the Lloyd Hartley Memorial Prize for a second year is a real honour. Music is a big part of my life and I feel lucky that I have had the opportunity to explore my passion whilst studying at HLC.”
Kate Morgan, Director of Music at HLC said:
I am absolutely thrilled that Adelaide has been recognised for her musicianship. She is an excellent performer and I am sure that she will maintain her passion for music whilst studying at University next year.
