Since graduating with a Masters in Music (Distinction) from the Royal Northern College in 2018, Sophie has enjoyed a vibrant and diverse freelance career. As a soloist, Sophie has had the pleasure to perform at venues all over the country including the Theatre Royal in Nottingham, Kraxton Studios in London, Shetland’s Mareel Arts Centre and at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase.
She was also featured as a soloist on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ programme, has twice been finalist and runner up at the innovative Future Blend Competition and was the recipient of the 2018 United Kingdom Harp Association Award. Sophie was also honoured to be a finalist in the Royal Northern College of Music’s Gold Medal competition, the highest accolade the college awards for solo performance. Most recently, Sophie has been accepted onto Yehudi Menuhin’s ground-breaking scheme ‘Live Music Now!’, which sends musicians to perform in schools, care homes, hospitals and day centres.
Sophie has just returned from a residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, where she was further developing her critically acclaimed show, ‘Notes from Shetland to Shanghai.’ Fusing live harp music with pre-recorded poetry, ‘Notes from Shetland to Shanghai’ explores the universally human experience that is migration. Sophie is now touring this exciting venture across the United Kingdom.
