London 2012 Festival – Rising Star Young Violinist, Francesca Dardani Appointed ‘Grado Ambassador’

World renowned headphone manufacturer Grado Labs is delighted to announce that international rising star young violinist, Francesca Dardani, has agreed to act as the ‘Grado Ambassador’ to the London 2012 Festival.

Francesca will be performing in the Aldeburgh World Orchestra which comprises young musicians from 30 countries and has been brought together for the Olympic Games. The orchestra will perform a series of concerts as part of the London 2012 Festival, including a Proms performance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Francesca will be keeping a diary and posting about her experiences with the orchestra on her facebook page. She was offered her ‘Ambassadorial’ role after contacting the company to say how much she loved her new Grado RS2i headphones.

Francesca stated:
“Because music is everything to me, I needed headphones that enable me to enjoy every nuance and emotion in a performance. My Grado RS2i do the job amazingly well and their cool wooden finish reminds me of my violin. They’re almost another musical instrument.”
