Laura first collaborated with the London Mozart Players in 2013, and the partnership will commence officially in June 2015 with the opening concert of the Portsmouth Festivities on 19 June 2015. Further concerts take place in September and January of next season.

Laura van der Heijden who turned 18 earlier this month comments: ‘I am thrilled that the London Mozart Players have chosen me to be their first Young Artist in Residence. Playing with them feels like chamber music, the way they play is very inspiring, the atmosphere is so supportive and working with them is always lots of fun.’

Nicolas Soames, the LMP’s new MD remarks on the appointment of the LMP’s first ever Young Artist in Residence: ‘We are delighted to have a close association with such a vibrant and enterprising young cellist who clearly has an exciting career ahead of her. We are actively looking for opportunities for further concerts together.”
