Jack Rainey awarded Peter Lloyd Memorial Flute Prize

Congratulations to undergraduate Jack Rainey, awarded the inaugural Peter Lloyd Memorial Flute Prize at the RNCM.

Jack started to play the flute at the age of nine and has just completed his second year at the College, studying with Kevin Gowland-Mahon. A finalist in the 2016 Northern Ireland Young Musician of the Year competition and the 2019 RNCM Concerto Competition, Jack has performed with the RNCM Wind, Opera and Symphony Orchestras and is a founding member of the Quora Flute Quartet.

The Peter Lloyd Memorial Flute Prize, which includes a £200 voucher for Just Flutes, was founded by alum Kathryn Williams in memory of the much-loved performer and teacher, who taught at the RNCM between 1994 and 2012. It is awarded to a first or second year undergraduate based on panel agreement at the end of year recitals, in keeping with Peter’s generous and encouraging approach to teaching.

Professor Linda Merrick, Principal, said: ‘Peter Lloyd was a truly inspirational teacher who leaves behind a legacy of brilliant students and alumni. It is wonderful that we are able to continue to support the next generation of flautists through this prize, awarded in his honour.’
