Student Success at Bromsgrove International Competition

RNCM students have excelled at this year’s Bromsgrove International Musicians’ Competition, winning four out of the five prizes available.

Second year pianist Wyn Chan and third year cellist Wayne Kwon both walked away with £3000 Finalist Prizes, while fourth year pianist Dominic Degavino (who recently won the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Keyboard Final) won the £1000 Sir John Manduell Prize, and RNCM SU President Hayley Parkes (pictured) took home the £500 Accompanists Prize.

The Bromsgrove International Musicians’ Competition began in 1981 as an international platform for talented young instrumentalists and singers between the ages of 17 and 25 (28 in the case of singers). Since then many outstanding finalists have found The Bromsgrove a stepping stone to national and international recognition and success. Previous RNCM winners include cellist Mikhail Nemtsov, saxophonist Anthony Brown and double bassist Toby Hughes.
