London Mozart Players with Danushka Edirisinghe
Danushka is a third-year undergraduate student at the Royal Academy of Music who has just won the Haslemere International Youth String Competition 2023. He started learning the cello at the age of 6 and in 2017, began studying at the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music with Ben Davies. In 2019 he gained a place in the National Youth Orchestra (NYO) of Great Britain before becoming the principal cellist of NYO 2020 and 2021. One of his prizes for winning the String Competition is the chance to play at Haslemere Festival with the London Mozart Players.
Don’t let the London Mozart Players name mislead you – we don’t just play in London, and we certainly don’t just play Mozart! As well as our residencies at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, St John the Evangelist in Upper Norwood, and Opus Theatre in Hastings, we’re well known internationally for working with many of the world’s greatest conductors and soloists. We’re proud to have developed a reputation for making and playing adventurous, ambitious and accessible music. In 2021, violin virtuoso Leia Zhu was appointed as our Young Artist-in-Residence and we’ll be opening the launch event for Croydon’s Borough of Culture in 2023.
