Relax with more Lunchtime Classics as 11th Yamaha Recital Series continues into 2012 at Chappell
Following the outstanding success of the hugely popular lunchtime recital programme, Yamaha Artist Services Europe (London) continues its eleventh and most significant series of the critically-acclaimed Lunchtime Conservatoire Concert Series at Chappell’s in Wardour Street, Soho, to showcase the very best upcoming young piano talent from UK Conservatoires.
The eleventh series by Yamaha and Chappell’s presents a national performance platform for the upcoming talent of promising students from the Royal Academy of Music (RAM), Royal College of Music (RCM), Guildhall School of Music and Drama (GSMD) and Trinity College of Music (TCM) in London, as well as the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The recitals offer a wonderful opportunity for London’s stressed out classical music lovers to take a lunchtime break to enjoy and appreciate performances by these highly gifted up-and-coming artists.
The concerts have received critical acclaim from some of the capital's top musicians, music professors and record labels since they provide outstanding showcase opportunities for the best emerging classical music talent in one of London's most intimate and historic concert settings. The series has also received excellent reviews from classical music writers.
