Following her success in this competition, Lauren has been invited to perform at the BBC Proms alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra, Proms in the Park with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and remains in demand as soloist throughout the UK and further afield.
We are delighted to welcome Her Worship, the Mayor of Woking, Councillor Beryl Hunwicks, as our guest to this recital.
