Tait Winter Prom

"No praise can be high enough for Piers Lane whose playing throughout is of a superb musical intelligence, sensitivity and scintillating brilliance."
Bryce Morrison, Gramophone

Dear Friends and Supporters

We are honoured that our Patron, Piers Lane AO will perform for us at The Royal College of Music on November 23rd for our 5th Tait Trust Winter Prom to help us raise funds for our Awards. Piers is one of our most treasured artists who played in our second concert in 1993 at Australia House and has since appeared for us many times over the years. We are so grateful for his friendship and support.

Piers has performed the complete Nocturnes by Chopin dozens of times throughout the world, including to a sold-out Wigmore Hall, in Manchester's Bridgewater Hall, Sydney's Angel Place and Melbourne's Recital Centre. For us, he will present a selection of his favourites.

He has recently been appointed as the Artistic Director of the Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia.

We will first showcase some of our 2015 awardees:

  • Alexandra Isted, violin - Tait Scholar at the RCM
  • Tabatha McFadyen, soprano - Tait Award, Bel Canto Awards Australia
  • Matthew Reardon, tenor - Tait Prize, Australian International Opera Awards
  • Chad Vindin, piano - Tait Prize, Royal Over-Seas League
  • Peter Wilson, composer - Loewenthal Award RCM

Don't miss this opportunity to hear Piers and our talented awardees and meet them at a small reception after the concert. For our Friends please join us for dinner at the Polish Club (Book here) with Piers and our Tait Awardee performers. Please follow the link below to book your place and book early as places are limited.

Our awards would not be possible without the support of the Tait Friends, our loyal private donors and our principal partner the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Thank you. Please come. Help us to support these talented young Australians who are making their mark in the UK.

See you there
