Noah Max: The Candle Lagoon (world premiere)
Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B Flat Major

Noah Max is ‘the modern Renaissance Man’ (William Bruce). He is ‘a very musicianly conductor with natural technique’ (John Wilson) and a composer whose works harness ‘a beguiling sense of beauty’ (Joseph Phibbs). He has conducted at Cadogan Hall, St. George’s Brandon Hill, Bristol and Snape Maltings, and his music has been performed and recorded by the Marryat Players, the Barbican Piano Trio and the Ebor Singers. Noah continues to champion new music nationally and internationally, including a comission premiere in Italy in July 2018 and conducting first performances of Zakia Fawcett's 'Seized' and Marianne Gilham's opera 'The Snow Goose'. Noah is a proactive chamber musician, prolific filmmaker and a painter whose work was recently exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery. His poems have been set to music by Ronald Corp OBE.

Katrina Toner's work has been performed at Milton Court, Birmingham Symphony Hall, The Courtauld Institute and St. James’ Piccadilly. She was the 2017/18 Composer-in-Association with the City Chamber Choir, who will perform her piece ‘Clouds Away’ at St. Anne’s and St Agnes Church in July 2018. In 2016 she won the New London Childrens’ Choir Composition Competition, and was a finalist in the English Schools’ Orchestra Composing Competition and the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers’ Award. She has participated in a number of international music festivals such as the Curtis Summeriest, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute and the European American Musical Alliance Summer Institute.

Andrew Garrido began learning the piano aged 11; he drew a keyboard onto paper and learnt from YouTube for four months before his first lesson. He has studied with Danielle Salamon at the Purcell School and Charles Owen at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has benefitted from masterclasses with Nataša Lipovšek, Jonathan Plowright, Aaron Shorr, Fali Pavri, Robert Markham, Iain Burnside, Justas Dvarionas, Dmitri Alexeev, and Peter Bithell. In 2017 he was awarded a Licentiate of Trinity College London (LTCL), a QCF Level 6 Qualification. He has performed at venues such as Fazioli Concert Hall in Italy, Milton Court and St. John’s Smith Square, and has recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
