The evening also featured young vocalist Sophia Regina.

About Daisy:

“I am passionate about creating world-class musical and theatrical performances which bring communities together and empower women and children, with a mission of healing and uplifting the world.

I started to play the violin when I was three years old, inspired by my aunt Louise Grattan (Jopling) who was a professional violinist and an incredible teacher. She is my lifelong mentor.

Both my parents went to great lengths to support and encourage my musical talent, and without them I’m not sure that I would have come through my teenage years still playing the violin.

I also had great teachers: I started with Olive Cox as a child, then went on to learn with Frederick Grinke as a teenager, with Frances Mason and Itzhak Rashkovsky at the Royal College of Music, with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and with Boris Kuschnir at the Vienna Conservatory. There are so many great musicians who have been invaluable to my musical development, I am grateful for them all.”
