Edward Lloyd: Piano

Edward Lloyd is a twenty one-year-old British pianist from Woodplumpton, Lancashire. At the age of eleven he chose to study the piano and from the age of fourteen competed in numerous piano competitions in the North West, winning first prize in many festivals including Penwortham Youth Music, and Burnley and Blackburn Music Festivals. At fifteen, he entered the European Piano Teacher's Association Competition held at Chetham's School of Music winning first prize in the 'Advanced One' class in 2017. Edward then studied at Cheetham's under Simon Bottomley, Jeremy Young and Murray McLachlan.

He now continues his undergraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music under Graham Scott. In 2021 Edward was awarded the first prize in the RNCM Beethoven Competition and went on to be awarded the second prize in the Beethoven Piano Society of Europe Senior Intercollegiate Competition where he represented the RNCM. Edward was also chosen as the recipient of the The Marjorie Clementi Memorial Award by the School of Keyboard Studies at the RNCM.

In his third year of undergraduate studies, Edward was selected to be a member of the RNCM Songsters and was awarded the Alexander Young Prize for best accompanist. Following this, Edward appeared on the main stage of the Bridgewater Hall where he performed with the RNCM Songsters. After performing Rachmaninoff's First Piano Concerto in the RNCM Concerto Competition in 2023, Edward was given the opportunity to perform his debut with the Oxford Festival Orchestra conducted by Felix Kirkby.

George Blakesley: Clarinet

George began learning to play the clarinet at the age of 8 at his local school in his home town of Leicester. When George was 16, he joined his local youth orchestra and developed a keen passion for orchestral music. George went on to study for his Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Manchester, under the tutelage of Liz Jordan and his Master of Music degree at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with Oliver Janes.

During this time, George's musical journey has taken him to playing and studying with some of the best musicians in the country. As part of the CBSO training scheme, George had the opportunity to play a huge variety of symphonic repertoire with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. In addition, he joined the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group's prestigious post-graduate ensemble 'NEXT' and developed an interest and specialism in performing contemporary music. George's love of contemporary music has led him to join Sound World Group in Bristol, a brand-new contemporary music ensemble dedicated to performing accessible contemporary music concerts in the South West.

Recently, George has moved back to Manchester to embark on a Postgraduate Diploma with a scholarship at the Royal Northern College of Music to further hone his skills. While there, he has had the opportunity to play with Opera North on their production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte and played with the Hallé Orchestra in February. George hopes to complete his course in the summer and continue his journey as a freelancer in the North West.
