There are few opportunities for talented young instrumentalists and singers to gain experience performing in public. Through the Festival’s Young Musicians Competition, four winners are selected each year who, as part of their award, share a concert within the festival (see entry for 19th October for this year's concert).
This concert gives three previous winners the opportunity to showcase their talents.
Rebecca McNaught was a winner of the Two Moors Festival’s Young Musicians Competition in 2014. Having gained a first-class degree in Music at Oxford, Rebecca has gone on to the Royal Academy of Music where, as a postgraduate student, she is a second-year scholar.
Clara Sherratt began playing the piano at the age of six, and in 2017 became one of the youngest ever winners of the Two Moors Festival’s Young Musicians Competition. She is currently studying with Dina Parakhina, Professor at the Royal College of Music and is mentored by the RCM's Head of Keyboard, Vanessa Latarche.
Toby Hughes is a winner of the Two Moors Festival’s Young Musicians Competition in 2007, since when he has been hailed as one of the most impressive double bass players of his generation to emerge on the concert scene. Having studied with the Principal Bass player in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, he went on to win the string section at the Royal Overseas League. In addition, he has given recitals at the Wigmore Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields and at the Edinburgh Festival.
Harvey Davies is one half of the Davies Duo (with pianist mother Helen), a founding member of the Pleyel Ensemble, a sought-after coach, accompanist, chamber musician and soloist.
