The recent Trinity Laban Gold Medal competition (11 January 2015) at Kings Place showcased the conservatoire's top students and the winner was announced as Harry Palmer, currently a third year composition student. The audience at the competition heard three of Palmer's compositions (conducted by the young conductor George Jackson), and they were popular with audience and adjudicators alike. The adjudicators were Dr Claire Mera-Nelson (Trinity Laban’s Director of Music), Gillian Moore MBE (Director of Music at the Southbank Centre) and violinist Tasmin Little OBE.  Tasmin Little commented that the evening has been a 'feast of music for all', praising Palmer for his 'gripping and mesmeric' compositions.

Previous winners of the Gold Medal competition have gone on to great things, with Elliot Galvin (Jazz Pianist, 2014) going on onto to be crowned European Young Jazz Musician of The Year, while last year’s winner Nardus Williams (Voice) is already forging a successful career as a Samling Scholar and Park Lane Group Young Artist.
