Our Gloucestershire Young Musician of the Year Adam Heron, who was one of the youngest competitors at 16 to take part in the contest, will be playing a recital at the Pittville Pump Room, Cheltenham, on Friday July 15th at 5.30pm.
The concert is part of the Cheltenham Music Festival and Adam, who is studying for his A-levels, will be performing the following works:
Prelude and Fugue in B-flat minor, BWV 867
Prelude in C-sharp minor, Op. 11, No. 10
Impromptu in B-flat minor, Op. 12, No. 2
Fantasie, Op. 28
Scherzo No. 2, Op. 31
Adam, who attended St James’s Church of England Primary in Cheltenham and then became a Gloucester Cathedral choral scholar, is now studying music at Wells Cathedral School.
This year, he has won both the Taunton and Gloucestershire Young Musician of the Year awards, the Outstanding Young Pianist (Mid Somerset Festival), Wells Cathedral School concerto prize winner and he has been accepted as a participant for the Ettlingen International Competition (August 2016).
He’s well worth watching as a future musical talent and a feather in the cap of GAM’s involvement with the contest.
