Our talented students put on a fantastic evening of music making this week at our Adrian Davies Chamber Music Competition final.

The competition, launched this year, has proved to be extremely popular with students.

The adjudicators for the evening, who also gave a fantastic performance during the event, were the acclaimed Aquinas Piano Trio, one of Britain’s most sought-after chamber groups (Ruth Rogers – Violin, Katherine Jenkinson – Cello, and Martin Cousin – Piano).

We are proud to have named this competition after Adrian Davies, who made a huge contribution to music over the years, as a violinist, teacher and conductor. Adrian’s wife donated one of his violins to Trinity after his death.

Congratulations to the winning students, who are as follows:

‘Adrian Davies’ Junior Ensemble Prize – The Trinity Guitar Quartet
Zander Bennett, Dominic Holland, Joseph Jenkins and Jamie Khandke

‘Adrian Davies’ Junior Individual Prize for the most promising chamber music player
Harry Jordan – cello

Head of Strings, Cristian Persinaru, said: “What a fantastic evening, full of amazing performances! We are so proud of all students who performed. The adjudicators, the Aquinas Piano Trio were stunned by the level of professionalism they showed. We would like to thank the Aquinas Piano Trio for adjudicating the event and putting on a first class performance”.
