Welcome to the latest edition of Purcell’s Weekly Highlights!

Purcell Pianist Solo Recital at Milton Hall

At the beginning of April, Year 9 pianist Zev performed a solo recital at Milton Hall in Peterborough. The event, which was sold out with an audience of 100 people, was a great success and raised an amazing total of £13,580 in aid of United24 for Ukraine. A huge well done to Zev for doing something so special which will help so many.

Purcell Harpist Triumphs at Welsh International Harp Competition

In early April, Year 11 harpist Aaron took part in the fifth Welsh International Harp Festival, held in Glaeri Caernarfon. He competed in the Youth Competition and performed for a jury of industry professionals including Geraint Lewis (chair), Clíona Doris and Monika Stadler. Congratulations, Aaron.

We were delighted to celebrate the recent competition successes of Year 7 violinist Zarema who, having taken part in three recent music competitions, has accumulated an impressive collection of awards.

In February, Zarema triumphed in the London Classical Music Competition taking First Prize, and followed this with Bronze Prize in the Euterpe Music Awards. She also competed in the International Mozart Competition Vienna in March and took Third Prize. Congratulations to Zarema!
