Mollie Wrafter

Mollie Wrafter has just completed her studies at the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of Leland Chen where she was awarded a first class honours degree. During her time at the RNCM, Mollie won the Norman George Violin Competition and was awarded the Irish Heritage Performance Bursary for 2019/2020. She will make her London debut in the Rudolph Steiner Hall in Marylebone in 2021. With her emerging piano trio, Mollie was awarded the Nossek Prize for 2020, and has enjoyed playing in masterclasses for Ning Feng, Mauricio Fuks and Jonian Ilias Kadesha. Memorable performances of the 2019/20 season include Wigmore Hall and National Concert Hall. As an Irish student in the UK, Mollie celebrates her heritage by curating chamber concerts which comprises the music of female Irish composers in Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, the seat of feminism in Manchester. 

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.
