RHYL will host yet another emerging classical music star this month.

Rhyl Music Club will welcome the return of young pianist Rose McLachlan, 17, to the Town Hall as part of its 2019-20 International Concert Series on Wednesday, January 22 at 7.30pm.

The accomplished youngest member of the musical McLachlan clan from Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, she began piano lessons in 2008 with her accomplished father Murray McLachlan.

Among her many achievements to date, McLachlan was the overall winner of junior and senior classes of the 2016 Scottish Youth Prize at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, has won the Royal Northern College of Music's Chopin prize and clinched first place in the 2019 Beethoven Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition Intercollegiate in London.

She has performed Beethoven’s second concerto five times as well as solo recitals in Lanzarote, Portsmouth, Wilmslow, and various lunchtime concerts at Chethams.

As an overall winner of the Chetham’s concerto competition in February 2018, Rose was selected to perform the Ravel G major concerto with the Chetham’s symphony orchestra during the 2018-19 season.

On her previous Rhyl visits, McLachlan has played pieces by Beethoven and Mozart, who will feature in this year's programme alongside selected pieces from Schubert, Debussy, Liszt and more.

Stephen Leeder, concert organiser, said: "I first heard Rose McLachlan five years ago and knew immediately that she would feature in future concerts at Rhyl.

"Don't be fooled by her age and that she is only just completing school - she is a marvellous pianist.

"A rising star? Most probably."
