Rosemarry (Rosie) Yang recently completed her Bachelor of Music (Honours) at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne under the tutelage of Carla Blackwood and Nicolas Fleury.
During her time at the Melbourne Conservatorium, Rosemarry has been awarded numerous scholarships and awards, including the Elizabeth Claire Wellisch Bursary, the Donald William Thornton Bequest Scholarship and the Ormond Exhibition in Music. She has also been selected to represent the institution on several occasions; performing for Stefan Dohr at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University masterclass in March 2020, and selected to film a showcase video for the Conservatorium website, performing Elgar's Chanson de Matin no. 2, arranged for horn and piano.
Rosemarry strives to be an agile musician, but has a strong passion for orchestral playing and chamber music. She has had the privilege of performing with the University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra throughout her undergraduate studies; her highlight being a performance of Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony in 2021.
Aside from orchestral playing, Rosemarry is also an avid fan of chamber repertoire, having performed works such as Brahms’ Horn Trio, Mozart’s Horn Quintet and the Dohnányi Sextet.
Over the course of her journey learning the horn, Rosemarry has had the honour of having lessons from notable pedagogues including Hector McDonald, Marie-Luise Neunecker, Christian Lampert and Stefan Dohr. These musicians have, and continue, to inspire and motivate Rosie to achieve her dreams.
Outside of tertiary studies, Rosemarry has been involved with the Melbourne Youth Orchestra, State Music Camp and the Australian Youth Orchestra National Music Camp. She has also been awarded the Most Promising Brass or Woodwind Award at the Australian Concerto and Vocal Competition in 2018, performing Glière's Horn Concerto.
In 2023, Rosemarry commenced her second year at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), continuing her musical training with Carla Blackwood.
