Trinity student, Charles Davies, named Trinity Steinway Piano Scholar for 2018 and 2019.
Charles Davies has been named the Trinity-Steinway Scholar for 2018-19.
Trinity’s top pianists were recently put through their paces at the auditions for our new Scholar. William Hardy, Charles Davies and Harry Jordan were selected as finalists.
Their three finalists presented their work at the Royal College of Music to Professor Vanessa Latarche, Head of Piano at the Royal College of Music; Mr Evans, Head of Piano at Trinity, and Mr Gorrie, the new member of the music team and an excellent pianist.
The standard of performance was, again, extremely high, and Trinity were delighted to announce Charles as this year’s Steinway Scholar (pictured).
Professor Latarche commented: “Year on year, Trinity’s pianists become more impressive and this decision becomes more difficult, but I am delighted for Charlie and look forward to working with him.”
Many congratulations to William and Harry for their excellent performances too, with both saying that “The RCM is so inspiring, it’s an amazing experience” .
