Rose has had the opportunity to play with orchestra on several occasions, with her debut aged 13 in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival playing Beethoven’s 2nd piano concerto. She went on to perform this another 4 times, with her family completing the set. I’m 2019, Rose performed Shostakovich 2nd concerto witht the BBCCO conducted by Barry Wordsworth, which was broadcast twice on BBCR3. Most recently, she played Chopin’s 1st concerto with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Peter Bay, as a result of winning the concerto competition on the PianoTexas Festival and Academy, where she was a Young Artist.

Away from the piano, Rose enjoys writing and has had an article published for the online Pianist magazine.
