Catherine Zeta-Jones Scholarship launched at RWCMD's St David's Day New York Gala

The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, the National Conservatoire of Wales, celebrated Wales’ National Day, and its own 70th birthday, with a Gala Dinner and performance to honour new Fellow, multi-award winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The St David’s Day (March 1st) event celebrated one of the UK’s most regarded Royal Colleges, and raised money for new scholarships, creating opportunities for both US and Welsh students.

The Catherine Zeta-Jones Scholarship was launched on the evening with a very generous gift from Catherine herself, and will be awarded for the first time in September 2019.

Catherine was joined by guests including the College’s International Chair in Drama & RWCMD Fellow, Matthew Rhys, Fellow Kate Burton and her husband Michael Ritchie, alumnae and RWCMD Fellow, singer Iris Williams, and friends and supporters of the College.

The United States is the College’s most significant international market, with more American students choosing to train in Wales than from anywhere else outside the UK.
The College is committed to growing its profile, networks and industry partnerships in America and to creating scholarships that will develop international cultural exchange between the two countries.

“Tonight was an incredible night not only because I spent St David’s Day with the Royal Welsh College, but also receiving my Honorary Fellowship from our national conservatoire of Wales was very meaningful to me,” said Catherine.

“I'm proud to support the College in raising funds for the most talented young artists/performers from both my home in Wales and my adopted country of the United States.

The funds raised will enable students to pursue their passion for the arts no matter what their circumstances. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these talented young artists.“

The evening, which was supported by Welsh Government, included a special selection of music and drama performances, showcasing the training of the College’s young artists, and celebrating Welsh and American culture, with particular tributes to Catherine.
