Leah (Watt 2017-19) was a music scholar at the college and is the daughter of Maki Hallinon who teaches Japanese at the school.  She won Young Musician of the Year here in 2019 and has continued to go from strength to strength.

Leah went to Trinity Laban as an undergraduate and now studies at the Royal College of Music.

We are delighted to welcome talented flautist Leah back to the school and very much look forward to hearing this quintet from the Royal College of Music perform.  The Birley Centre was where Leah spent two of her formative years so she should feel very much at home!

Tickets are available for £9, to include a glass of wine, from the Eastbourne College Box Office: 01323 452255 or  This concert is open to the public so do please come along and bring your friends.  We look forward to seeing you.
