Receiving a Wingate Scholarship for the academic year 07-08 has allowed me to continue my postgraduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music. The year commenced in exciting fashion for me, with very well received performances of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto no. 2 in the Sydney Symphony Discovery Series. On returning to study in London I have been invited to perform in the Guildhall Hall School's Chamber Music Festival for next May, in recital at LSO St. Lukes, and at the Barbican in March for a set of Britten folk songs, and look forward to various other collaborative projects.
Thanks to the Wingate Scholarship, I have been able to immerse myself with a new sense of purpose and enthusiasm for my art and begin to emerge in the professional sphere.
