Pianist receives Making Music UK PDGYA award

Pianist Ugnius Pauliukonis has been selected as one of the 2018 recipients of Making Music UK’s Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists (PDGYA) award.

The PDGYA awards help to kick start the careers of up-and-coming classical musicians by providing performance opportunities with Making Music UK members. Over the years they have supported numerous RNCM musicians, including mezzo-soprano Mary Plazas (1989), guitarist Craig Ogden (1994), cellist Philip Higham (2010), and saxophonists Huw Wiggin (2011) and Anthony Brown (2013).

Ugnius is currently studying for an International Artist Diploma and is a previous RNCM Gold Medal winner. His studies are supported by the Stanley Picker Trust and the Rollo Davidson Scholarship.
