A violinist will be entertaining an audience at Bury Parish Church tomorrow, Friday.

The concert of the Irish-born musician Mollie Wrafter will begin at 12.30pm.

Tickets are £5 on the door and doors will open at 11.30am, where refreshments will be available.

Mollie recently graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of Leland Chen, where she achieved a First Class Honours in her Bachelor of Music degree.

Prior to arriving at RNCM, Mollie studied with Oonagh Keogh, a member of Irish Chamber Orchestra and Artistic Director of Ceol na Mara Summer School for Strings and Ceol na Mara Chamber Orchestra and Oonagh’s mother Dr. Geraldine O’Grady.

In 2019, Mollie won the Norman George Violin Scholarship Competition and was awarded the Irish Heritage Performance Bursary for 2019/2020.

She has participated in masterclasses with Ning Feng, Frederieke Saeijs, Mauricio Fuks and Nicholas Trygstad.

As a student in the UK, Mollie prioritises the connection with her Irish heritage.

She has collaborated with musicians from Wales, Scotland and England to form an ensemble which celebrated native music with a contemporary twist.

Mollie also curates chamber concerts which comprise the music of female Irish composers in Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, the seat of feminism in Manchester.

The project aims to celebrate the legacy of Irish female musicianship and artistry.

Through the support of the Wolfston Foundation, Mollie plays a copy of the "Lord Wilton" Guarneri del Gesù crafted for her by Glen Collins in 2018.
