    About the musicians...

    Hayley and Edward are both in their third year of study at the prestigious Royal Northern College of Music. Between them they boast a range of experience, having performed in many of the UK’s finest music venues including: The Bridgewater Hall, The Sage Gateshead, Symphony Hall, The Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall.

    Hayley was chosen as one of five of the top young pianists in the country to compete in the BBC Young Musician of the Year Category Final. She has also won first prize at the Beethoven Junior Intercollegiate Piano Competition and was twice winner of the EPTA UK piano competition. She is also the recipient of various awards including The Vernon Farley Piano Prize, The Peter Donohoe Prize and has also gained praise for her skills as an accompanist by winning both The Marjorie Pennington Prize for Accompaniment and the The James Oncken Song Prize for Accompanist.

    Edward was named Staffordshire Young Singer of the Year in 2013 and was subsequently invited to perform as guest soloist at Birmingham Symphony Hall under Nigel Taylor. At the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival he received a nomination for ‘Best Male Character Actor’ for his portrayal of Grosvenor in Patience. He sang in a staged performance of Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel with the RNCM Chamber Orchestra in July 2015 and in December he will be joining Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic as they perform Schoenburg's Gurrelieder in the Grieghallen, Norway, as the final event of their 250th anniversary celebrations.
