The College hosted a glittering St David’s Day Gala Evening at New York’s Rainbow Rooms last week with students, graduates, friends and very special guests.
Celebrating our 70th birthday and Welsh and American culture, as well as honouring Catherine Zeta-Jones, the evening showcased the talents of our music, drama, stage management and design students.
Catherine was awarded her Fellowship by her long-standing friend, RWCMD Fellow and international musical theatre director Anthony Lyn.
“An inspirational evening with this incredible group from The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama!
Delighted to be initiated as a Fellow of this stellar establishment.
Thank you all for sharing your talents! I was honored and in awe by your presentation.
I’ll let you know as soon as I pick my jaw up off the floor!” Catherine Zeta-Jones
The event raised money for new scholarships, which will create opportunities for both US and Welsh students.
The Catherine Zeta-Jones Scholarship, which will be awarded for the first time in September 2019, was also announced on the evening.
An incredible evening…..the students and past graduates were unbelievable and a credit to this amazing institution.. https://t.co/YBPraFbSux
