FLAUTIST Rosanna Ter-Berg has hit top note three times in a row winning prestigious British music awards—and all in less than three weeks.

The 22-year-old from East London won first place in the Eastbourne Symphony Orchestra Young Soloist competition, was named joint winner of the British Flute Society’s Young Artist award and took top slot in the Harold Clarke woodwind contest.

“These are the first competitions I have ever entered,” she said. “Winning against many leading young musicians in such prestigious competitions gives me the confidence to pursue my aspirations in solo, orchestral, and chamber music.”

Rosanna, born and raised in Hackney, studied at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg, one of the top prestigious French schools of music, through the EU Erasmus programme.

She is currently in her first year of the Masters in Performance programme at London’s Trinity College of Music, studying with Professor of Flute Anna Noakes who said: “Rosanna is talented, versatile, courageous, charismatic and unmissable!”

The praise doesn’t stop there. The judges of the ESO Young Soloist Prize highlighted her “onstage energy” and have invited her to be the featured soloist at their summer concert on June 20 in Eastbourne.

Rosanna raised £3,000 last June for the Childreach International charity in her final year at Leeds University, climbing to the Mount Everest base camp.

That must have taken a lot of wind. But then, Rosanna has proved she’s an expert on the wind instrument.
