Teenage musician Rosie Sullivan from Barvas is heading home from London today (Thursday November 8th) after a star-struck night on one of the most iconic stages in the UK.
Rosie was one of the performers at the Music for Youth Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and took part in last night’s finale concert alongside hundreds of other young performers from across Britain.
Over 3,000 musicians were involved over the three-day Music for Youth proms. Music For Youth is a national youth arts charity giving young people free access to life-changing opportunities to perform and discover music, right across the UK.
Singer-songwriter Rosie is already on a steady career path, with her EP Space launched at An Lanntair on October 29th. Including four tracks penned, sung and played by Rosie, it’s available on digital platforms now.
The experience of playing at the Royal Albert Hall adds to a clutch of stage experiences for Rosie, who is also happy to go busking as she develops her stage-craft.
Posting on social media as she set out for home this morning (Thursday November 8th) Rosie said: “Well that was like a dream, and it still doesn’t feel real.
"Thank you so much to Music for Youth and the Royal Albert Hall for allowing me this incredible opportunity, not going to forget it in a hurry! Thank you so much to the audience and my family for all the support too. London, I will most likely be back!”
