The students include pianists Domonkos Csabay from Hungary and Luigi Carroccia from Italy, South African soprano Caroline Modiba, clarinettist Luke English and Taiwanese violinist Yu-Mien Sun. Professor Julian Lloyd Webber, Principal, Birmingham Conservatoire, said: “As Principal of Birmingham Conservatoire I want to share the marvellous music-making which goes on there with a wider audience.
“This is the first showcase we have given outside Birmingham and I am sure the audience will enjoy a fantastic evening of entertaining music from my specially hand-picked students!”
In 2016, Birmingham Conservatoire’s Adrian Boult Hall was demolished as part of the £500 million Paradise regeneration project. Meanwhile, the music institution is currently preparing to move to a new state-of-the-art £57 million facility later this year in the Eastside region of Birmingham.
Part of Birmingham City University, the new Birmingham Conservatoire will be a unique contemporary building, incorporating five public performance spaces including a new 500 seat concert hall for orchestral training and performance, private rehearsal and practice rooms, and teaching spaces for musicians from a variety of disciplines.
Between the closure of the Adrian Boult Hall and the new building opening, Birmingham Conservatoire is presenting a full programme of concerts in its Recital Hall, as well as at partner venues across the City and region including Artrix Arts Centre, Town Hall, Symphony Hall, Elgar Concert Hall – Bramall Music Building (University of Birmingham), CBSO Centre, St Philip’s Cathedral, St Paul’s Church and the Rep Studio Theatre.
