Ben Schoeman (DMA student) competes for Guildhall School of Music and Drama award on 2 May 2012
City Music DMA student Ben Schoeman has been selected as one of the finalists for the Gold Medal at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The Guildhall School's premier music prize was founded and endowed by Sir H Dixon Kimber in 1915 and since the 1950s it has been open to singers and instrumentalists in alternate years.
The final traditionally takes place in May each year in a sold-out Barbican Hall. Previous winners include Jacqueline du Pré (1960), Tasmin Little (1986), and Bryn Terfel (1989).
Ben will perform Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto no.1 with the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, conducted by James Judd.
